Tiny Talk Tuesday

Tiny Talk Tuesday

Max lived up to his Wild Thing name tonight but instead of sending him up to his room, I made him answer math problems until he calmed down.

And she roared her terrible homeschooling roar…

Hey, it worked.  It didn’t hurt that the reward/threat was to get to watch/not watch TV.

Not one to miss an opportunity to extend a teachable moment well past the necessary point, I said, “see Max?  See how you calmed down when you focused your brain to think about those math problems?”

To which he answered: “yeah, but now I’m gonna stop thinking and watch TV!!”
