I have read "The Well Behaved Child" and I have been implementing the ticket system for three days with my three year old son. Today he lost all of his tickets after a complete melt-down at Costco. He has been in his room since his nap time around 1 pm. Two questions: He has a lovie that he uses at naptime and bedtime that I have taken away from him should I do that? Also when I put him down an hour early for bed should I keep with bed time routine? Reading a book and singing a song?
