Ok so after and incident on school bus that resulted in me getting a call from the driver, DD's punishment for the week was : she got the television taken out of her room, I confiscated her new Monster High doll and had to fess up to her father about what she had done.
Now you must understand that the TV in her room for her is a BIG deal !!! She spends a LOT of time in her room watching her TV, it's her way to unwind, relax after school, she even eats dinner (by choice) in her room 90% of the time in front of the TV and after her shower, she relaxes and gets ready for bed while watching TV. Yesterday she came home from school and called me at work to ask if she was allowed to watch TV downstairs. And I said yes, until I come home from work. But during dinner no TV, after dinner it's straight to homework, 6pm-7pm homework then shower and then she stays in her room until it's lights out.
DH thinks I'm being too soft by letting her watch TV after school. He says I'm going soft and it should have been no TV at all, all week. I am being too soft or is he being too harsh ?
And to my huge surprise my ex-husband who's usually as tolerant as an rabid badger didn't blow a gasket when she told him about the incident and was all mushy about it. ???
