Today was my first time to put my son on his time-out chair. His father is usually the one who do the utmost disciplining because I honestly would tolerate my son and doing my best to be patient and just keeps telling him NO whenever I need to. But today, I was not so pleased with doing the same thing that he is not allowed to do.
Here the things that he did:
Crossing the fence. We have a little fence between our living room and my sister-in-laws bedroom. We put that there coz we don't want Abi to go to her bedroom coz she has lots of stuffs there that he may end up damaging. In fact, he already damage 2 of her CD players. A few days ago, he got an idea on how to cross that fence by using a chair. He would move the chair near the fence and jump his way across it. I kept telling him NO and on the 5th time of doing it, I told him that I will spank him the very next time. He did it for 6th time and he got a spank on his butt.
Playing with the stuffs underneath the sink. There are lots of stuffs underneath our sink that are dangerous due to its chemicals. We put lock there so that he won't be able to get to them but my son broke it a couple of days ago. We told him not to go there plenty of times to no avail. Earlier he did it again so I put him on his time-out chair.
Broke the puzzle. His time-out chair is a high chair that we put on one corner of our house where can't reach anything. Well, we thought he can't but while he is on that chair, he got interested with the big puzzle behind it (talking about about 2,000 pcs puzzle) and decided to break them into pieces. Now, he is on his bed. Got bored then conked out.
Being a mother is not easy. You need to have never-ending patience but at the same time, you need to discipline your child for his own good. It hurts me to punish him but he needs to understand the WORD NO especially when parents say it.
