He cannot be punished.

My little wannabe teenager has been getting in trouble lately. Nothing serious, but I have been having to lay the smack down which is usually just taking away technology. It's devastating for him for about 3 minutes until he realizes that it's no big deal. I caught him sneaking the tablet behind my back after being grounded from it for 3 days. He had one last day of punishment left and he knew it, but he went ahead and snuck the tablet anyway. I told him that I was adding an extra day since he was being sneaky and using it behind my back. He responded with, "Okay, that's not so bad."

So maybe grounding him from technology is not working as a form of punishment. I see soooo much of myself in him. It scares me because there was nothing that really worked in disciplining me either. I eventually learned to act like whatever punishment my parents gave me were awful so they thought I learned my lesson, but I was just acting in the way they wanted me to act - miserable, and I didn't learn a thing. They would even give me lighter punishments because my acting was on point. I was a conniving little brat and maybe this is my karma?

I think the problem is that Wyatt knows that punishments are temporary. He's learned it already. He's ahead of the game. 

What are some ways that you've been able to teach your kid right from wrong? How do you handle bad behavior with an almost 5 year old? Of course we have conversations with him, but it's important to me that he learns that actions have consequences. Except the consequences for him don't seem to matter.

The Design Shop Is Open.

I'm kind of trying to put myself out there more, pursue some things that used to make me really happy. I used to love to create and design but I found myself getting way too caught up in life and then barely even turning on the computer. I didn't have a single creative thought in weeks and I just let my body go through the motions of daily routine. It was a nice break but now it's not nice anymore and I'm feeling like I'm ready to create again.

I put together an online portfolio so I can share with potential clients that are interested in me. You can check it out here - My Portfolio.

If you'd like to work with me, I can create you a logo, vector, font, template, etc. Just email me and let me know, you can order work from me on my IROCKSOWHATprints big cartel site here if you're ready to go. Once you order I'll shoot you an email ASAP so we can talk about what it is you're looking for.

Of course, this blog offers a ton of freebies for those that like to do it themselves. Feel free to go through my archives and snag as many freebies as you like! Just please only use my freebies for personal use only.
