FOr example,say he repeatedly throws his toy car on the ground at the grocery store because he thinks it is great fun, not because he is upset and there are emotions I need to address. SO I tell him that if he continues to throw it, I will have to take it away because I need to grocery shop. Of course he throws it again and when I take the car away, isn't that a consequence?
Sometimes it is not an issue of danger (like breaking something or hurting you), but you just want them to stop doing something. as moms there are times when you are not patient and you just don't want to creaet a yes environment in the moment and you need to regroup and can't let them do whatever they want in that rough moment. Does that make sense?
