Thats always an option. Or tell them "Not if I kill myself first" then go get some ketchup and a big knife, paint your face and take a short nap on the floor. Cue childhood trauma.

Yeah because children are rational and listen to reason... I doubt if OP said this that she would turn around and suddenly be all apologetic and nice.

I didn't say they should start to reason but to tell them straight that saying things like that upsets other people. It's not about the logic, it's learning to emphasize.

Actually according to most psychologists, depending on the age of the child. They don't always realize that what they say or do affects other people. The only way to show the child what they did wrong is to discipline them. Either by timeout out, call the mother, or something of that sort.

#1 are you one of those people that sends kids to their rooms or gives them time outs if they've done something wrong? "No Johnny. Now you go sit in the corner and think about what you have done!". I say kick their ass, tell them why they're getting it and let them think before talking again. Stop nannying them IMO.

Wow! Kids are weird. They pick up things from TV and movies, even when their parents don't realize they're watching/listening. It's sad that every time a kid has any kind of "abnormal" behavior, someone wants them taken from their parents. Not everyone parents the way you want. Letting a kid watch a crime drama or action movie isn't abuse.
