Not Santa's Friend
Aidan has really come into his terrible two's lately! He throws a fit when he doesn't get his way. We have been taking advantage of the upcoming holiday to try to curb this behavior. After he throws his fit and receives the appropriate consequence (usually a timeout on the stairs or in his room) we comment that Santa Claus was watching and that he would be disappointed that Aidan was not listening to his mom and dad. We also remind him that if his behavior doesn't change, Santa Claus may not bring him any presents. Aidan's response to this information was not quite what I expected, "Santa doesn't bring me any presents. I not Santa's friend!"
