So my 6 year old son got caught stealing twice today. It was only candy from home this time, but I know he needs to learn his lesson for it before it becomes worse so I made him write "I will not steal." 30 times tonight. About halfway through it he began complaining that his hand hurt and it was too hard to write because of the pain. He did finish it but does 30 times sound reasonable to you for a 6 year old?
