Tip #2: Child Behavior

My kids can whine, fight, and generally drive me crazy all day long, but the moment I tell them it is almost bedtime, they suddenly become quietly and cooperatively engaged in some sort of educational activity.

So, whenever things get out of hand and I can't stand it anymore (sometimes as early as 3:30 p.m.) I'll announce, "Okay guys, almost time for bed!"

Alternative announcement: "Okay guys, it's time to get locked in the closet!"*





*I am 95% kidding.
