When Discipline Fails

Chichimama: “That’s IT! No TV and no computer for the rest of the day!”

C: “THANK YOU Mommy! I didn’t want to watch TV today anyway! I wanted to play construction!”

Later in the day:

Chichimama: “That’s IT! I’m turning on the timer and if the construction site isn’t cleaned up by the time it goes off, there will be no extra books at bedtime!”

C: “THANK YOU Mommy! I’m really tired and I didn’t want an extra book tonight anyway!”

Chichimama: (under her breath) “I give up. I really, really do.”
