My four year old son went into my room and took my foundation and put it on his hands and then wiped it on his shirt. When I asked him what was on his shirt, he lied to me and told me he didn't know. I smelled it and figured out it was makeup. But, I didn't tell him that I knew what it was. When I asked him again, he told me the truth. My problem is that he went into my room without my permission, which is something he is not allowed to do. Secondly, he took something that did not belong to him. And thirdly he made a mess on his shirt that might not come out. I know makeup stains are exceptionally difficult to get clean.
The question is...is it typical four year old behavior or should I discipline for this? I feel like I should discipline because he did 2 things he shouldn't do...go into my room with me there and taking something that wasn't his to play with.
What would you do?
