Ok so Chase made a fire again in my house at 6 in the morning before I even knew he was up. SO Jacob tells me. And I tell Chase he's grounded until I decide. (I am so mad I cant even think about how many days) So no TV, no toys, no outside, no nothing basically. SO tonight I am watching Ember and Jaxen. and They brought King Kong well he wants to watch it. I nicely remind him he grounded and ask him if he remembers why. He tells me I made a fire. Yes. I gets mad and walks to his room. (Nicely though, so it was all fine by me) Then he comes out gets a paper and pencil and starts writing...comes up to me a little later and gives me a paper that says "I will not play with fire" over and over. I tell him it very nice but hes still grounded. He walks away again. I start cleaning up dishes from dinner and ....again have to go pee....for the millionth time today. and hear dishes banging and yell from the bathroom for someone to stop getting dishes out. Chase says I'm putting clean dishes away.(Now I am starting to feel the guilt trip) Then he hugs me and says sorry. I tell him again that's nice but he's still grounded. He gets mad this time and stomps to his room. He comes out again and asks what he can do to watch the movie? I stay strong and tell him nothing He made a bad choice and has to deal with the bad consequence. He starts to cry and tells me goodnight hes going to bed because there's nothing for him to do.
I feel really bad but I think I am doing the right thing? but I hate that he is so nice right now but tomorrow he will probably not be.
