Self Discipline

Reese is a hitter. She loves to wail on her brother. Last week, I started placing her in TIME OUT. It only took 3 or 4 times before she actually stayed in one spot until I told her she could come out 1 minute later. She then has to tell Ben she is sorry, and has to give him a hug and a kiss. Has it helped? Nope. She will look me square in the eyes and hit Ben time and time again, all the live-long day.

Today, I was getting us ready to head out to the doctor's as Ben was playing the piano. She walks up and starts hitting him. I turn to look as she placed herself in TIME OUT. She sat there for about 45 seconds, said - and signed - "sorry", gave Ben a hug and kiss and went about her way.

Hmmm ...

That is so sweet! It's enough to tug at one's heartstrings to think of little Reese placing herself in Time Out. I love it.
