Pedro needed reminding last night that I am indeed in charge.
I am the mommy.
I am the Alpha dog.
I turned him over on his back to force him to submit to me, and I held him there by his throat(Gently, of course. The exercise was not intended to hurt, only to remind him of who needs to submit to whom in our relationship...), all the while maintaining eye contact.
I didn't tell him he was bad, I didn't hit him, I didn't even yell.
I simply firmly reminded him that I. Am. In. Charge.
Forever and ever, amen.
Oh, did I mention that we're trying a new discipline technique at our house?
For future reference, will this work for toddlers?
I think Cesar would have been proud.
