Hint...Hint...This works :)

I dont remember where I read this, but I remember I read about how someone disciplines their children when the fight and it works better than time outs or making them say I'm sorry or any of the other tactics people have tried. So today was one of those days that Camille and Elijah were just bickering and fighting and bickering and fighting and on and on and on.... I couldnt take it anymore. I sent them to their room and then I remembered what I had read at one time. So I gave it a try.

They sat and watched TV with each other for 15 minutes HOLDING HANDS!!!
Sibling Love

As you can see, Elijah was fine with it and Camille was rather upset by it all. I think it gave away who was really at fault for today's episode. Mrs. GrumpyButt. I will remember this for future use and go ahead and try it yourself if you feel so inclined :)

I just love this idea. I would have hated it when I was a kid. :)

I once made K sit with Brianna on his lap and sing to her for 5 minutes as his punishment for being unkind... worked like a charm!! Love the hand holding too :)
