One-step behavior solution

Does your child have a behavior that needs fixing? Here's an innovative, high-tech plan for changing it:
  1. Blog about it.
That's it. That's the whole strategy, and it works. The day after the carnication post, Sidamo declared that he's over it. "What I am is tired of turkey!" is actually how he said it. (If you've read Bread and Jam for Frances, you'll get the reference.)

Unfortunately this strategy turns good behaviors around too, so think about that before bragging online about things like your 20-month-old using the potty.
