We have a five year old son, he was sent to his room for the entire day after being violent with his mother. Our house has an open balcony on the second floor looking down over the living room. His mom caught him outside looking down on the TV. Told him he has to spend another day in his room. She says each day if she catches him out even once she will add another day. I believe the temptation is too much for a 5 year old boy to resist all day when he can hear the TV from his room and that this is excessive. She claims the Rosemond book supports her, that he needs to learn obedience. Can you give some feedback please on what a reasonable expectation of a five year old boy is?
