My daughter (3 1/2) always reads a book while she is going potty. When she was done I walked in and the book (which is one of those open the tab books) was in pieces on the floor, completely ripped apart. She knows that she is to treat her books with respect and we haven't had an issue with it in a very long time. I thought knew better. In the past I always said if she couldn't treat her possessions with respect she would lose them. Well, today I followed through. I had her pick up the pieces of the book she tore apart and then sat her on the couch and proceeded to bag up all of her books. Phew! There are over 12 bags and these are just the downstairs book. Now I'm wondering what exactly I was thinking. Where am I going to put all these books...am I really going to take away her <b>books</b> of all things...should I just forget it...should I follow through...if so for how long? My intention was never to take them away for good, just for awhile is what I told her. I just kind of snapped when I saw her do something that I thought we were way beyond and wanted to make an impression. I'm not sure that I handled this very well. Advice on what to do next???
