My child just had an accident of the “too busy playing computer games to get to the toilet on time” variety. Since he’s not ill and it was actually a case of poor prioritising,a punishment was called for.
However, saying no Wii (as in the nintendo Wii) for the rest of the week caused a lot of confusion and upset, because he thought I meant he wasn’t allowed to wee for the rest of the week.
#explanations were given #he was more outraged at computer deprivation
Ah yes, our child:
*child fidgets A LOT*
*child insists he doesn’t need the toilet*
*child is told he has to go and try, because we think otherwise*
*sounds of Niagara Falls come from bathroom*
