What if, instead of addressing the issue with punishment or consequences, you turned it into a mutual learning experience by having a real heart-to-heart with each other about what happened?

What was it that made him feel so bad that he acted out? And what can the two of you do so that next time something like that happens, you can sit down together and talk about it and figure out what to do to make things better?
