Correct Discipline for Opening Xmas Presents Early
I came home from work yesterday and noticed that my 8 yr old ADHD son had opened the ends of all his presents and looked inside and then tried to tape them back. Know he knows what all he is getting and then when I asked him about it he started lying, yelling and crying. I am not sure the appropriate way to handle this. He was just diagnosed with ADHD last year and I am still trying to figure out how to approach different situations. My first reaction was to take all of his gifts back and he gets nothing for xmas…..but then I was like is this the right way I should handle this??? I want him to learn a lesson. So confused!! Needing Advice!!!!!! Thanks
