I don't know how to handle DS sometimes. He is 6 and very sensitive which is fine but he freaks when he gets in real trouble. Tonight I found a piece of fabric from a dress up outfit. I asked what happened and he said he did not know. I asked who was wearing it and he said him, I asked again what happened and he said he cut it because it was bothering him. I told him he lost free access to scissors they were his homework scissors and because he lied when I first asked he lost reading and singing tonight. He SOBBED, partly because he got it trouble and mostly because he said e loves his songs.
The only reason I am posting is to see if anyone would have handled it differently especially since he is very sensitive. I want to teach him but do not want to break him.
