Withholding Birthday From 7 Year Old


Hi, My 7 year old daughter has a perfect word that describes her actions towards her home school and chores, and that word is lollygag. I have frustrations with this and have for awhile. I had to work recently, while my husband stayed home and did the day-to-day with the kids. My 7 year old was lollygagging. My husband fed up, and giving her plenty of chances, told her she would not have a birthday which is coming up in a couple weeks. I feel sad about her birthday, and having to tell all the in laws,etc. Do you think this is an effective consequence? Thank-you.
