When I say "no no" to my kids they start mocking me. "NO NO!" they yell and giggle and keep doing exactly what they are doing. I've read you have to be consistent and follow through when disciplining kids. I do the exact opposite. Here is a typical scenario.
(Girls get up on couch and start jumping.)
Me: No, no girls. We sit on the couch. Sit. (I tend to repeat myself when talking to them like some kind of moron.)
Them: No no no! (Giggle. Continue jumping.)
(I spot them so they don't go flinging off the couch. I'm an enabler. Always have been, always will be.)
(Girls climb onto coffee table from the couch.)
Me: Girls, really, no no. We don't climb on the coffee table.
Girls: No! No! (Giggle. Giggle.)
(Girls go from all fours to standing on coffee table.)
Me: Girls, seriously, no no. You're going to get a boo boo! (I always threaten the impending boo boo.)
(Girls point to boo boos on their knees and nod. Continue walking around on coffee table.)
(I go over and hold their hands as they walk around on coffee table so they don't fall off. Then decide they look cute and take picture.)
Please look for a post in about 12 years with their first mug shot for an armed robbery for which I supply the gun and drove the getaway car.
