As I yelled at my kids to do-what-they-were-bloody-well-told-for-a-change I wondered about whether or not kids could really be taught to behave in three days.
Three days – 72 hours – that’s what British parenting expert Kathryn Mewes has claimed is the length of time any parent can get their children to behave in.
Just 72 hours.
The length of time it takes to get to the moon.
The length of time that makes a weekend actually feel like a weekend.
The length of time it takes to make a pair of Bruno Magli shoes.
The length of time sperm can survive trying to find that little egg.
72 hours to immaculately behaved children.
Who could resist that?
