Best laid plans of moms & dads often go awry

During a sad conversation about which consequences some of A's undesirable actions of late should have, I asked her what her favorite toys were.  Positive affirmations of good behaviour have not worked.  Firm talking- to's have not worked.  Time outs have not worked.  R and I thought we'd give her a warning and then she would lose her favorite toy for a week. 

Of course, that plan backfired when A thought for a second and tearfully answered, "My brother and my sister."

Can't very well take them away for a week, now can we?  On to plan #5 . . .

. . . any ideas about a plan #5 would be much appreciated . . .
