My son and I had plans for an evening out of his choice. During a preceding walk, he admitted to lying about something-repeatedly. I again told him of the importance of honesty the first time and of my disappointment but also took away our evening plans. It’s in my nature not to “reward” bad behavior. Did I make his defense mode deeper with my actions?
