I love a game of Cluedo but real life cluedo is not so fun! Obviously I don’t mean what child killed the other child, where and what with (I give up with that game) When you have more than one child it is impossible to know who did something. For instance last night someone cut Harry’s hair. Both pre-teens were upstairs with him, both have scissors. So who did it? I have no bloody idea. I have told both kids I want the truth, gave them the talk of it’s more mature to except your wrong and admit it, about the boy who cried wolf, but nothing has worked! Neither will admit it and just go in a childish tantrum when you say you think it was them.
Last night I was convinced it was my son Jordan but this morning I’m starting to think it may be my daughter Courtney.
Because Jordan insists it’s not him and he said to me “When you find out it’s Courtney you will have to apologize and reward me lots”
And when I said to them both, they are not allowed out with their friends until the culprit own’s up, Courtney said “Well I’ll say it’s me then, I suppose I’ll have to if Jordan wont own up” which I responded with that will not work and I want a real confession.
If I’m honest it did sound a bit like admitting it, but didn’t want to admit it.
It’s annoying me more the fact they will not admit it and tell me the truth rather than the cutting of hair. Because it was not that much and is not hugely obvious.
So what would you do? How do you handle it in your house?
