A & L were sitting at their table eatting cookies we'd baked for afternoon tea.
A kept running away & leaving a trail of cookie crumbs behind her.
I told her to sit down with her cookie or I'd take it away.
She sat down for 2 seconds before running off again.
So I tracked her down & took her cookie.
Ofcourse she got upset & followed me begging 'no mummy, I'm sorry, I'm sorry mummy!'
Weve been focusing on practicing manners for a few days now (please thank you excuse me & apologizing)
I was stumped. I really wanted to reward her manners.
I took the cookie anyway.
What do you do when your confronted with conflicting disciplines?
