Words with Aidan About The Smuggling Incident

I asked Aidan after preschool about sneaking the DVD player. Here's the conversation...


Me - "Why did you take that DVD player to school after I told you that you couldn't have it?"

Aidan - "Well, you didn't even see me put it in my bag!"

Me - "Don't you think you should be punished for sneaking around like that?"

Aidan - "Like how?"

Me - "Like a spanking or no TV or losing allowance."

Aidan - "No, I don't like any of those."

Me - "It's punishment, you're not supposed to like it."

Aidan - "What about we do something else."

Me - *softening at the humor of the conversation* "Okay, how about you say you're sorry. Are you sorry?"

Aidan - "Yeah, I'm really sorry I'm in trouble."

OMG! That is too funny! You had to have laughed in his face. So what was the punishment or did the laughter make you just drop it?

He's right. None of those options were worth a darn.

So... I've just started following your blog and it seems like you have a freakin genius of a child! I can't believe he says that stuff. The smarter the kid - the more difficult. You are totally in for it. :)
