I've got a problem that I am wondering how to resolve.
It's with regard to my son.
He screams/shouts...whatever you call it!
He does that mainly when he is tired.
Due to some comments received since the PD trip...even from certain children, I have been wondering about my need to discipline him with regard to his shouting.
I know he does it for a reason.
But I reckon he need not do it too often. Especially when I am trying to give him the most comfortable position to sleep.
I started scolding him on Sunday.
He took to the scolding hesitantly.
It managed to stop him from shouting for too long.
Last night when he shouted at dinner, I tapped his mouth and scolded him.
Last night I saw a change in him.
I could see that he was really 'geram'.
His whole body would stiffen up and he would shout but more inwardly than outwardly (if you know what I mean).
I don't want comments that he is misbehaved.
Or any sighs that he is shouting again.
But I also don't want to do the wrong thing by him.
Have you experienced this before?
When is it time to discipline a child?
I feel he understands when I am angry and he understands the scolding.
But his reaction last night was the first time.
And it made me sad and worried and scared.
I have to pray....
but I would also like to know what your thoughts are....
