      I have learnt that in Psychology class during my University days that we humans can be program into doing things. One good example is driving. Most of us driver would drive automatically from A to B without conscious effort. Somehow our daily routine of driving has programmed our brain and body to do it effortlessly.

      In taking this theory to action, I am trying to program my children. Timothy and Emily fight all the time. Last week, in church they went overboard. Emily scratched Tim and Tim hit Emily because of an airplane toy. After we went home, papa caned both of them.

      I thought of a better punishment and ask them to do this:

      I told them, every time they fight, they have to do this. I kind of like the positive statement compare to the negative. Usually if you ask a child not to do something, they will do otherwise. By writing this, I am hoping it will be program into them. Let’s hope it works.

      Side humor that happens today that I want to record for myself:
      Hubby: Dear, I can go home now. Network down and I cannot do anything.
      Me: Sorry dear, I have a meeting and I will call you when I can go.

      After my meeting, I saw my hubby online and I msg him…
      Me: Dear, your network still down.
      Hubby: Yeah.
      Me: How come got Internet? :giggles:
      Hubby: Now it is up already.

      miche: You write positive or negative statement?

    3. haha….write with full of hatred like what Miche mentioned? so funny Miche!

    4. Hub ever asked Wien wrote similar sentence too but seem not really work. She still doing it.

    5. Haven’t tried this method on Des but I’m sure it won’t work for her too. The punishment which works will be the ‘monster glare’ from me and when I say “1, 2” (without reaching 3). *heehee*
