There’s been a meme going around with the idea of wrapping empty boxes to put under the tree, and when your kid acts up, you throw one into the fire as a consequence of their actions, the child thinking that one of their gifts is now burning. My sister did this to her 4 year old and, he was scarred by it. He’s still crying about it 3 days later….. I feel so bad for him and know that if he acts up again, another “present” will be gone, upsetting him more. Should I let my sister continue doing this, even though her son is really upset about it, or should I talk to her about it?
