|A closer look at what YX drew !|
Few days ago when we were back home after work, we were shocked to see the wall with some extra 'decorations', AGAIN !
The 1st time was over here.
The 2nd time, I did not blog about it. The kids did it again a few months back (ushering the Rabbit Year). They used color pencils and ball pen. Hubby and I did not managed to clear off the mess and we decided to leave it this way. We planned to buy a can of paint to repaint that piece of wall one of the day. Of course we did reprimanded the kids. No cane was being used.
Never did we imagined that, the wall was being 'decorated' again for the 3rd TIME ! And this time, YX was the only person who did it. He was supposed to do his homework but he 'conteng' the wall instead with his pencil.
Hubby took out the cane but I stopped him. To think back, my brother and I used to draw on the wall too when we were small. And 9 out of 10 kids I've known, drew on the wall. If majority of kids did that, YX is no different. He is just a NORMAL & CURIOUS child. I don't think he should be caned. But of course we did tell him that it is WRONG to draw on the wall.
When YX saw the cane on hubby's hand, he was very scared and started to cry.
I explained to YX that it was WRONG to draw on the wall because wall is meant to be clean to make the house look beautiful. Drawing on the wall = dirtied the wall. I did asked him some common sense questions and he did answered me correctly.
I reminded YX that he should draw on a piece of PAPER instead of on the wall.
I made YX apologized to hubby for his mistake and say "I promise NOT TO DRAW ON THE WALL again in the future".
Glad that hubby's 'fire' doused off once he heard YX's trembling voice. We made him rub away the mess with an eraser but it was quite hard to clean it off totally. What's important is I wanted him to FEEL the difficulty in cleaning the wall. His hands were very tired rubbing. And he was all sweaty once his 'job' was done.
We had decided to repaint that piece of wall, soon. Or maybe we should wait till they grew up first ?
