Recently I awoke to my twin boys fighting with one another. Although this doesn’t happen frequently, it is beginning to happen a bit more frequently than I would like.
So, I’ve implemented something new in our household. Copy work as punishment. The first offense gets you 25 sentences and it will go up in increments of 25 each time it happens.
Both boys had to do the copy work.
In our house the person who “starts it” gets punished as well as the person who chooses to retaliate. It is the only way I know to illustrate to my children that you don’t follow bad behavior with more bad behavior.
How do you handle children hitting one another in your family?
