I threaten my kids that:
- I would lock them inside the store room if they continue crying.
- If they cry continously till they vomit, I would make sure they clean it all up on their own.
- I would leave the younger one with paathi should he continue to pee on the bed.
- I would throw away his (the younger one’s) fish if he talks rudely to me.
and yes, I tell them to shush up if they keep on talking.
More on another day…
