I’ve been trying to add a little negotiation to the discipline process. I’ve been giving the expectation, and if not met outlining a consequence with a count of three to avoid it happening. It’s not stopped the mischief but it’s making the picking up and so on a calmer affair.
Tonight she climbed up on the TV cabinet.
“Darling, can you get down from there?”

Sandwich for dinner tonight, by request. Orange for after.
I get the orange from the fridge.
She’s handed the orange to check. It’s cold.
I take it to the bench.
“Yes, I’m cutting the orange.”
I hold up the partially cut orange.
“Yellow orange, blue orange!”
“Well more like orange orange, really. Here you go.”
The oranges are tipped off the plate. I take it away saying:
“OK, no plate but please eat the orange.”
“You want plate now?”
“OK, but please eat the orange.”
Let the record reflect no orange was eaten.
