Ultimatum 

It took a few days to reach the stage of ultimatum, of threatening the kids to cancel their air tickets for poor behavior.

It was a crossroad at times.

On one hand, we knew the kids were misbehaving to the point where going on trips with them would be a torture.

On the other hand, we craved for holidays and the kids’ company so we would bring them along.

The kids might not know at this point on the power they yielded, so they truly believed in our threats. It worked for us.

We received less tantrums and issues, though I wished it was more internally driven than externally motivated.
