Scared Straight and a plunger

I can't believe today is only Monday.... I am just done with this week. 
My four year old son thinks he is like 14, and allowed to have am attitude.. uh sorry kid- no way.
So today he is crossing his arms at me, talking back and just not listening... time out's not working, taking away his privledges has no effect so.. things got serious. I plopped his tiny booty on the couch and put on "SCared Straight" the show where they send unruly teens into jail. After about five minutes his eyes get big and he asks "why are those kids crying and being yelled at?" So I told him. That's what happens to "punk boys" (our term for turd kids) who don't listen to their mommies.... what do you think about that? He starts to apologize and say he doesn't ever want to go there when I start hearing "splish....splish...splash..." I look around and notive my three year old is out of sight...so I go to the bathroom and there she stands. Plunging the toilet. Awesome. Luckily there's nothing in the toilet, but she still got scrubbed up in the shower and reprimended. Bed time can't come soon enough tonight.
