Hi John! I continue to respect your writings/books and teachings more than any authors I've come across. I have read all the books you've suggested to me for my toddler son (a wild one). I must be missing smtg w/ tickets. He seriously doesn't care if I take a tickets (I'll stick him in time-out too w/ each lost tick), it's like he doesn't quite get what I'm doing. Once he's lost them all and we send him to his room (w/ a gate or he won't stay) he freaks out and screams so bad that it really upsets my baby daughter and the whole family. He throws up, wakes up the baby, etc. It's hell on earth once the he's in his room.
