Colt has made a number of trips to the corner since moving in. It's usually been cases where you've explained a rule to him, then reminded him of it, then some corner time is the next step. That's worked so far. Despite the fact that he's a foster child, it was made fairly clear to you that light corporal punishment would be acceptable in his case, both because he was never physically abused, and because they're hoping he'll fit into your family. Colt knows that as well as you do.
Tonight, Colt has been pushing things further than he ever has before. His older brothers have a lot going on. Normally someone will make time for their younger brothers, but right now, they're all busy. Despite having that explained, Colt has continued pushing for attention. It's not something you want to put him in the corner for, but when you've tried to talk about giving respect to get respect, and what the older boys have going on, he's been argumentative.
You finally shush him.
"Colt, I understand you're frustrated right now, and it seems like you're a bit out of sorts. I'm trying to explain things to you, but you have to learn how to discuss things politely, and one thing you do not do is interupt..."
"But you keep interrupting me!"
What's the next thing you say?
