At what age do you think this is an acceptable punishment? Meaning, what age do you think a toddler could benefit from and understand this punishment?
My 3 year old DS is having the worse meltdowns over cleaning up his toys. Today, it got so out of hand and he became so disrespectful. After he calmed down, I told him if this happened again, I would take away his monster trucks (his most prized toys) for a day. I explained to him that he has to take care of his toys and that means cleaning them up. He always says ok and will do better, but then its another war again.
