The day started out OK. My hubby left for work before we all got up and my Kiki slept a little later than usual. I got them breakfast and all was well until I requested that Kiki get dressed and that is where it all went downhill.
We head out the door and cross the bridge to the parking lot but Kiki just stands on the bridge. He won't cross. I tell him he gets to 5 to come across or else... I don't remember if I specified what would happen. Well he didn't cross so I went and got him and told him he lost ALL his stickers for the week. That really set him off. He spent the whole car ride to daycare screaming at me that I'm not nice, and to be honest I was almost in tears. I just ignored him since yelling back that he wasn't being nice didn't seem like it would help.
So are we now suddenly considered inconsistent? We pride ourselves on being consistent but we allow ourselves room to change our mind about things. However did we change our mind for the wrong reasons? I don't know. We did decide that skee ball is not the reward to use because he needs something more instant than a whole week of working toward one big thing. Smaller rewards each day vs one big one at the end of the week, cause he's only three. So there you have it.
