Due to two rude encounters my 10 yr old had this weekend (one with the children's choir lady/one with his Sunday School teacher)...He's on electronic restriction for the next week. (That means no computer or gameboy/ds). With the tv - if it's on and dad and mom are watching...he can watch the show...if Bry is watching...he can watch it but he can't turn the tv on himself.
I'm thinking that it would have been easier spanking him and getting it over with...but that's not really working lately...so restriction city here we come.
Things were bearable until I received a call from my girlfriend telling me she's coming up from Oceanside for the weekend because it's one of her sons birthday. Her oldest will stay with us all day Saturday. There en lies the problem...it's going to be an electronic fest and my middle one won't be apart of it. When he finds out...he'll be crying and begging to be off restriction early. He already has missed Awana, a play date on Tuesday, he isn't going to the homeschool party on Friday and hasn't left the house and yard since Sunday...should I let him have electronics Saturday? If I do that's a day early and I feel the punishment would have been for nothing. I'm kind of leaning towards no electronics Saturday and let him run errands with me.
