Joshua was staying at my mom's house for a few days. While they were outside, my mother corrected him for something and he threw a mini fit and hit her on the legs. She of course, in return, put him in time out. After asking many many times to get up, he finally met his time our requirements and was allowed to get up.
He played for a little bit.
Then again did something that he wasn't suppose to and was told 'no' by his Granna. Again he hit her on the leg and threw a fit. She told him that it was not OK to hit anyone and that she does not hit him, so he should not hit her.
He then went and put himself in time out for almost a full minute.
I hope this is a sign for many years to come that he will always know that he has to follow the rules, or face the consequences.
