'Sweet Home Sextuplets': Courtney tries the 'time-out' rule, but will the sextuplets listen to her?
The sextuplets are a handful to parent and so are their tantrums. Courtney decides to impose a 'time-out' rule but will that make a difference?
Courtney and Eric Waldrop have their hands full with nine children and while it is easy to handle the boys, Saylor, Wales and Bridge who are all grown up, there are times when the sextuplets, Rayne, Layke, Rivers, Tag, Blu, and Rawlings, get a little out of hand. To make sure that the sextuplets learn right from wrong, Courtney decided it was time to introduce the 'time-out' rule.
The sextuplets have been throwing a lot of tantrums and at times, things have gotten a little out of hand. Courtney decided to take them for a painting class to make sure that they are active. Since they were born 10 weeks premature, Courtney knew it was important to engage them in activities that will help them with their development. The boys managed to enjoy more than the girls and were quick to get comfortable. However, the girls had a hard time enjoying the task. Luckily for her, after giving them some time, they managed to come around and tried to get involved with all the tasks they were given.
Just when Courtney thought things were going easy with the sextuplets, she noticed that the sextuplets were beating each other a lot. They were climbing stairs, tables, among other things and Courtney feared that they might hurt themselves. Despite constant warnings, the sextuplets failed to listen to her. Their constant fights led to one among them always ending up crying and Courtney knew it was a behavior that should not be tolerated. Speaking to Eric, Courtney wondered if now was the right time to bring the time-out method in play. The time-out method would have the children sitting a corner and thinking about their actions.
Courtney feels the children are getting old enough to know the difference between right and wrong and stressed on the importance of implementing it. Rawlings was the first one to get the time-out punishment as she failed to listen to Courtney and continued to throw tantrums. Courtney admitted that she felt guilty about treating them this way but tried to justify her actions by stating how the sextuplets needed to learn how they had to behave. Luckily for her, Rawlings managed to calm down and was back to her chirpy mood in no time. While the time-out method worked for Rawlings, will it work on others?
'Sweet Home Sextuplets' airs on Tuesdays at 10 pm ET on TLC.
