Lack of respect

SO....how do I handle this situation? My 8 year old son decided it was good to stand on his bed (it's a loft bed) and pee down and across the room into the closet. Then my 4 year old son thought he needed to try as well. Problem is it went all over their belongings in the room and the clothes hanging in their closet and the wall between the closets....covered in pee. HELP ME? I know their ONLY 8 and 4, BUT how do I handle this? They show no respect for ANYTHING they own.

You yank them up and take control.  The first thing they need to do is gather up all the clothing they urinated on and learn how the washer and dryer works. Then you need to remove all their toys, tv's, games, etc. for a period of one week.  

If they behave themselves, start returning items, one at a time.

Let them know that if they misbehave again... it will be a period of two weeks.

Don't let an 8 and 4 year old run your household.  It's time to get tough.

Good luck.


One day I said, 'I will go out & look for my enemies' and on that day I found no friends. The next day I said, 'I will go out & look for my friends' & on that day I found no enemies. ~YeddaHeads~

One note... ask yourself what your own parents would have done if you had pulled a stunt like that and you will probably have your answer.

If your children don't respect any of the things you have provided them... then remove those things so that they learn to respect their belongings.

You owe them a bed and bedding, enough clothing for school and sleep, 3 square meals per day, and anything else you've given them is extra.  Remove the extras until they learn how to appreciate them.

Well it seems the lil 'rug rats' have discovered all the 'magical things' their 'weenies' can do. And I agree with Jada, but with a twist...For 2-3 weeks straight they both have to do a variety of house hold chores. Whenever they balk or refuse to do their chore, such as cleaning the bathroom, taking out the garbage or washing the cars...they lose a favorite thing of theirs. Whether that be a TV program a toy or playtime...whatever.

Back in the day, a little corporal punishment was in order, such as a reasonable spanking. But now a days they call it child abuse.


What?....Who?...Me?... .....What'd I do?..... Political correctness is a doctrine, fostered by a delusional, illogical minority, and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a piece of crap by the clean end.

the 4 year old sees his older brother as an ideal.. so he's going to do whatever his brother is going to do..

when you control the old one, problem solved.

don't let them take the best of you... its their mess they clean it.. even if it means that they will have to wear their clothes with the pee on it (which will lead to being made fun of at school) and sleep in their room with the smell of urine. their mess, they clean it up... 

when they see how you're dealing with that, they will come crying back to you and ask for help, and that is when they will learn how the laundry machine works...

and i dont think they'll do it EVER again..
