He did it again…hit the dog.

He hates writing, so that is a consequence for bad behavior. He has been sitting for nearly 2 hours, refusing to write a single sentence. He thinks he can “win.”

He will sit until he does it. If bedtime comes, then tomorrow he sits. He made the bad choice, he will suffer the consequence.

The yelling, screaming, whining is almost too much. I turn up the tv louder, to drown it out.

Waste of everyone’s time, this defiance. 

It is hard…
