I missed getting my ds from the bus stop on Thus., so one of the moms brought him over and said that the bus driver needed to speak to me. I spoke to ds to see what happened and he said the driver talked to him, but not about what or why.
Getting information from my son is like pulling teeth from a chicken.
On Friday morning I talked to the driver as the children were boarding. ds and boy1 were sitting behind the driver and ds punched boy1 on his nose causing this poor kid to cry. The driver had boy1 switch seats with boy2 and then ds pulled boy2's ear.
Great, so my kid is trying to turn into a bully.
When ds got home on Friday, the bus driver said that ds behaved. So when I got him inside, we had a talk with him. We explained what he shouldn't do and if he had a problem, who to tell. Then we took all his toys and tv privileges away for Fri.-Sun.
My mother, MIL, Aunt and BIL said that we were too harsh on him and that the lecture would have been enough for a first offence. That we could have taken toys for a second and then toys and tv privileges for a third.
I disagree, I made his punishment as harsh as possible so there (hopefully) won't be another offence.
What do you ladies think? Did I do the right thing or was I too harsh? What would you have done?
* I also should mention that he is 5 almost 6, with the attention span of a gnat.*
