DS is strong. an attempted chair time-out ended up with a fight
DS, 5, spilled out my entire bottle of Dr Bronners soap. It's just an object. Really, it isn't a big deal. But in the moment, I wanted ds to have a time out. He knows better than to do something like THAT! I told him he needed a 5 minute chair time out, which did not go well. I had to alternate between picking him up (he's 40 lbs) and dragging him by his arm. Then to sit him down I had to push him. He turned red trying to fight me. It was awful! I gave in and sat on the couch to cool off. He was crying and kept trying to hug me. He calmed down and I gave him a nice talking-to about the situation. Then we moved on. The rest of the evening was great. So...next time. What can I do? Time outs are more than a scream fest. I mean he is a physically strong kid! He even fights DH sometimes. DH is 250 lbs.
