I really appreciated this podcast, since we have a very impulsive son (sensory issues and a learning disorder) and I have a question: we’re having trouble coming up with a consequences that don’t feel like punishment for him, i.e. “logical” consequences, and we struggle with when to give them simply because he is so impulsive and he is often too wound up with feeling to stop himself from doing it a second (or hour or whatever) later. He easily feels hurt and consequences can feel so punishing in that frame of mind. Do you run into this with your girls, and taking away screen time?
