Tick Tock Tick Tock Tick Tock

Generally, Lauryn gets put on the "time-out bench" for throwing tantrums. This morning I've decided to use the "I'm going to completely ignore you" tactic.

Scene:

"Mommy, can I please have milk?"

"Okay, here's your milk. You need to sit at the table with it please."

"NO!" Falls dramatically to the ground.

That was about 25 minutes ago. No real tears are falling at this point but the pseudo-crying is still going strong.

At one point she said "You're not my friend!" I just ignored her and she calmly said"Bubba taught me that." Then she went back to crying.

At first it was wearing me out, but at this point I've kind of tuned her out and I'm just curious to see how long she can keep it going.

After while I decided I better remind her what she was even upset about. Two minutes after I said "Lauryn, your milk is on the table if you'd like to drink it", she hopped up and guzzled it down and we went about our day. Parenting is not for sissies.
