DS (almost 6) has been on quite a destructive path lately...idk why really...but we live in a rental...i cant afford to keep repainting walls, fixing holes, etc...i take toys, take tv, take outside playtime...make him go to bed early....etc...today...today he bit holes in the blinds in his room....totally destroyed them....when i asked him why did you do this (after he intially lied about even doing it) he looked at me very matter of fact and said plainly and calmly.....because i wanted to......wtf...

Good, he can do chores around the house to "earn" money to pay you back to replace the blinds he "wanted to destroy".

(By chores, I mean ones that he doesn't normally do, but is age appropriate.)

I wouldny take outside time away. Sounds like he needs to run off some energy.

Maybe your going about his discipline wrong? And he needs to be worked a bit??? Chores?

My go to discipline is standards

"I will not break things" 20 times........

My dd is six and has been acting up a bit lately.... She drew on a door..... At a friends house!!!! She cleaned it off... apologized to her friend and friends mom, we left mid play date and she had to wash two doors at home, no tv for the rest of the day......

Boredom is not an excuse to be destructive! And I've found, at least with my dd..... Simply taking activities/toys/etc.... Just leads to more boredom and more bad behavior.....

maybe he needs more chores...he doesnt have many...making his bed, picking up his room before bed, putting his clothes in the hamper, empty the bathroom trash. thats about it...

Things like the soap I would make him clean it up. Any damages that I had to fix and pay for id have him work it off with chores around the house.

Chewing holes in blinds is typical? I highly doubt it.
