My kids are excited about Halloween. My 12 year-old scared his 4 year-old brother by telling him there is a monster in the closet. My husband told me I should not have scolded our 12 year-old because we can use what he said to our advantage. Our 4 year-old has a habit of not listening. My husband says we can use the monster in the closet against him. I thought my husband was kidding until he said the next time our 4 year-old acts up he is going to tell him that the monster is going to come out of the closet and get him. He says it's good parenting. I disagree and think it's wrong to terrorize our son. What do you think?
