Grandparents and Timeout

Timeout has been working really well with Ander. I'm surprised, actually, since developmentally, he's too young to understand timeout. At least, that's what the books say. Still, he stops doing whatever we want him to stop doing after a brief timeout, so I'm calling that effective.

But why, oh why, oh God why, must the grandparents all talk to him the entire time he is in timeout. "Oh, Ander, your mommy is mad. You shouldn't have stuck your hand in the VCR after she said no no. Poor thing. You must be sad in that corner."

{Rolling my eyes}
