My husband stole my chocolate bar! Don’t worry, he will be severely disciplined. But, I cannot decide how to do it. Any ideas?
Here are some discipline methods that work on our 2 year old:
1- Place him in his crib for a time out.
Hmmm… That one is not going to work. I don’t have a crib large enough and lifting him up into it is another story.
2- Take away his toy.
First, I am pretty sure my husband would not throw a tantrum the way my 2 year old does if I took something away. Second, If I were to take away a toy, like his bike, I’m not sure where I could place the toy that would be out of reach. Third, I would take away the chocolate, but it’s a bit too late since all I saw was the wrapper that was left behind.
3- Tell him to say sorry.
I am not sure this would affect him the way it does my 2 year old. I am also pretty sure it wouldn’t be as cute as when my 2 year old says it.
4- Have him replace the chocolate bar.
I can’t do this with a 2 year old, but I make mention of it because my parents always made me replace something with my own money If I had taken it. I am not sure that this would impact him either… he would probably buy me one and happily buy an additional three for himself. By the way, he claims he does not like chocolate. But I don’t think that I believe him any more.
5- Sit on a chair in time out.
I am not sure what this would accomplish other than him laughing at me and thinking about how good the chocolate bar was.
Okay, I am totally kidding. But since I photograph the chocolate we taste, there is one golden rule: “Do not eat chocolate until it has been photographed”. However, I am still open to ideas to ‘remind’ Chocolate Dad of this rule and I will continue to share my chocolate… AFTER I take pictures.
Have a Good Day and make sure to keep an eye on your chocolate!
