4yr old SS has been acting up quite a bit lately (ie sneaking scissors and cutting open the presents under my moms tree, being generally sneaky, lying, coloring on walls/television/all over his enitre body, being generally rude)and i cant figure out why! most of these things havent happened at my house (just the lying and attitude)... the gift thing at my mothers and basically everything else plus throwing tows out the window, at BMs house.
Now, DH is the one that found out he drew literally all over everything at his moms house because he saw it when he went to pick him up for the weekend, plus his entire body being covered in marker. he asked BM if he was punished all she said is "no, hes just 4"
...............JUST 4?! he is way too old to be doing things like that and suddenly acting up. SO since we really dont have much control over how she decides to parent, we punished him at our house. he wasnt allowed to play his DS for the whole weekend unless he was good at mommys house all the next week. which worked like a charm lol
anyway, i just dont understand her "hes just 4" thing like he shouldnt be punished for doing something that he knows is wrong?? she has said that to us 3 times now. "hes only 4" and doing nothing about it. is she trying to make us the bad guys? i dont get how she thinks this is a good idea?! lol UGH
