Like that boxer who tries to fight out of the ring, my kids know that there are consequences for acting outside the boundaries of good behavior. There are consequences when they get out of line. ” Some people believe in giving their kids a “time-out” when they get out of line. That doesn’t always work. I wish my dad had believed in time-outs.
