Tonight while getting ready for bed, I got Lex a fresh cup of water and handed it to him.
He proceeded to pour it down the drain.
So I took his cup. He clearly didn't need it.
That's when he decided that he really wanted a cup of water and threw a big fit.
Yes, I could have just refilled the cup and given it back to him. Gawd, that would have been easier.
But I want him to learn that he can't get his way by throwing a fit.
And I want him to think before acting in a wasteful and destructive manner.
So I told him that he couldn't have another cup of water until the morning.
He cried about the cup of water until almost 10:00 PM.
And I felt like a huge jerk. Over a cup of water.
But I know I'm right.
