The truth about Sunday mornings
Almost every Monday Walker is grounded or has lost a privilege, because the "poor" decisions Walker makes on Sunday morning. It usually starts Saturday night. He will ask,"Is tomorrow church?" " Yes,"I say, "tomorrow is church." Yea!! Then immediately after he starts to say things like; "I hate church, church is dumb, church is ugly, and I'm not going."But he soon is distracted until Sunday comes along! We have 9:00 O' clock church and we are always in a hurry. But Walker starts the whining and complaining pretty early on( about Saturday.) This morning he threw a fit about getting on his church clothes, brushing his teeth, and combing his hair. He gets a warning to change his behavior and then a punishment. Walker loves Video games so when I take them away he acts like I am taking away his left arm or something. So He made the choice to be naughty and so I grounded him from video games. This seems to be our routine almost every Sunday. He loves primary and is fine once we are there, but its getting there that is our problem. And he's only five. I thought "the I hate going to church" stage started at eleven or twelve, not five years old!
