Thank you for clarifying. My 3 (almost 4) year is following my footsteps, habitually listening to the yetzer. So at bedtime, on occasion my son does something awry on the way to the bedroom, and we parents have sometimes said, "you have lost song and story privileges (which includes Shema)." Is there any wisdom in withholding these blessings from my child on the occasional disobedient night? Relative to this question only, where is a good place to draw the line between "training / discipline" and "letting a 3 year be a 3 year old, and a 5 year old be a 5 year old."
