Say it and Mean it.

Remember the incident that Jayden refused to put on his socks and I ended up being very upset with him and he was very upset too cos I left him in his principle office without any shoes on? (i brought his socks and shoes and left it there with him). I told him to put it on or I'll leave him in his principle office without any shoes. So he tested me and I meant what I said and I did it.

So this morning it happened again.

Jd: Mami. i dunno how to wear my socks.
Me: Baby you can do it. Just put it on like how you do it every morning.
Jd: But my eye is painful
Me: eh do you use your eyes to put on yr socks or you use your hands?
Jd: But my hand painful....
Me: Painful? then how come you can hold your Thomas?
Jd: ...i cannot do it.
Me: okay.. no problem. Later I'll bring you without any shoes and leave you in Teacher H's office and I'll ask her to put it on like that day... remember?
Jd: *total silence*
Me: baby?
Jd: Yes?
Me: So how? Can wear your socks now?
Jd: I put my socks and my shoes on edi.
Me: Good.
