A Short Sentence ...

... actually 100 of them. With the six year old needing 4 pieces of paper to finish hers.

Think it'll serve as a reminder for next time we go to a restaurant and they attempt to throw a COLOSSAL fit over ... crayons?





I may just start packing paper and pencils to begin their next 'sentence' in the car ...

you GO girl! how long did it take her to do that? And how many times did she say "I dont WANNA do this?"

I'm inspired!

I saved a similar one from my daughter when she was about 8 years old and throwing a fit at the mall about not getting something. It works!!

Good job!

At the very least they will become great writers one day. What? That's what happened to me. ;)

Although mine were always very long sentences...because my mom was mean.

I will not hit my brother Justin, as it can be harmful to his emotional health.

No serious...that's the kind she'd give me.

Love this kind of consequence. I wholeheartedly believe it works great!

Connie said...

We do this too... rarely, because it doesn't take much. They hate it!

This? Brilliant. I am going to steal this idea next time my kid gives me lip!

Thanks for posting! I had forgotten this particular punishment and am totally stealing it the next time my boys start fighting.

I did this once! Only no one made me do it and mine said: I LOVE COREY I LOVE COREY I LOVE COREY I LOVE COREY x 100. I was in Grade 8... haha! :)

P.S. You're brilliant.
