Gray is sassy to begin with and the terrible twos have only worked to multiply her defiant streak. Because of this, she’s no stranger to behavioral correction.

The other day we were all sitting in the living room. She was playing with Finn and in retaliation for something Finn said or did she escalated and threw a punch. As soon as she did, she looked over to us, blinked twice, and said, “Timeout? Okay!”

And then she got up, walked over and hopped up into the timeout chair.

I suppose it’s only punishment if it’s punishment. We might need to get more creative.
