I remember when I was young, someone would do something bad, and the "good one" would reply "aaaaawooowooo, you going to be in toooouuuubbbbleeeeee......MOM!"
Well, Tillman has been getting into some trouble the past few weeks at daycare. We have seen it at home as well and have tried to discipline him, but he continues his ways. First, it started with him throwing toys. They did tell us that a few other kids were doing the same and that all of them were being put in time out, and we needed to work with him on this (I take all of these bad things he does personally, as I strive to be a good parent).
When he showed interest in balls, we (good parents) taught him how to THROW! The issue with that is he doesn't know the difference between a ball and other toys. Big mistake to teach him to throw a ball, as everything is being thrown. Just this morning, Nick put him in his car seat. He was pretty mad about it, and Nick gave him one of his toys to play with for the ride. He took the toy and threw it out of the door before Nick could get the door shut. Man, it is frustrating to see his act this way!
Yesterday, Nick pick up Tillman and the teacher stated he had a bad day, and he was put in time out for hitting another kid over the head with a toy (yes, you heard that right...hitting a child over the head with a toy). She put him in his crib for time out. I'm sure he hated being in his crib and that is good, as he should feel disciplined. Nick told her it was ok for her to hit his hand if she wanted to. Unsure if daycare will let her do it. It's hard when we are not there to do something about it. He won't remember if we try to talk to him about.....he doesn't even talk!
So....we struggle with how to handle him. We have "stepped up" popping him on the hand and telling him no (yeah, yeah, getting on his level and telling him "NO" in his face...as all the "books" tell you to).
Nick suggested this morning that we have a "no no" rug or chair in our house. So, the next time you visit, you might just see the "no no" area!
