July 1st, 2020 Changing Your Mind Has Consequences
Livvie is learning that she can change her mind… a little too well. I am trying to reign this back in on the fact that changing your mind can have consequences.
For example changing her mind when not wanting a bath earlier and then one right before bedtime means no fun with colored soap.
Changing your mind when you say you want to go to Walmart but changed your mind in the parking lot… of Walmart means no iPad or TV time for rest of the night unless you go inside to commit to original plan.
The later example of this was even set rewarding as she wanted to go to Walmart to get more ice cream. By not going inside, I knew she would ask for it later once we were at home.
