I remember never being able to have a phone conversation when our boys were living at home. It didn't matter if they were 2 years old, or 17 years old. Come to think of it, it continues to happen when they come home to visit.
What have you tried to get your kids to stop interrupting you?
A. I have told her at least a hundred times to stop interrupting me.
B. I told him that I would be off in five minutes, and when he was younger, gave him my watch and showed him what the numbers would be when the five minutes was up.
C. I only spent time with my children when they were home, so there were no interruptions.
D. Every time my child was involved with someone else, I would interrupt her, so she would learn what it feels like.
Please post your responses in the "comments" section, and read next week's blog for the Positive Discipline way of dealing with being interrupted by your kids.
