Andrew has become very forgetful lately. A week ago Roger tied him to the refrigerator to help him remember to finish his loaf of bread. Today we did it again. This time he tied it around his neck (loosely) and when he finished his chore (taking the trash out) he could take it off.
I like this technique better; tie the rope around his waist; the person that ties the rope (Mom) has to untie it. Not only does he stick with his task better; he then has to report that he has finished.
I think I'll be 'tying up' my kid a lot in the future!
