There is a photo that has been appearing on my Facebook feed.
I just though, eh, nice photo, and kept scrolling. But it just kept appearing.
Then a mum in the office cornered me today and said, "OMG, have you seen this?".
What I didn't realise is that I had scrolled past the most ingenious parenting invention in the history of the world.
I know. That's a big statement. But it is true.
Check it out:
Still confused? Still baffled?
It's called the Time Out bottle. Or the calm bottle. Or the fairy bottle.
It's called geniusness. Yes, that's a word.
Say your kid is having a full blown melt down. I mean lying on the floor. Tears. Screaming. Banging fists. Just the thought makes me want to grab a
bottle glass of wine for my inevitable future.
You want to put them in a time out, right? But you know what will happen. They will continue the tears and the screaming. They may even demand to know how long they have to be there. You may or may not scream, "Until I decide". Which only makes them ask five seconds later if you've decided yet.
Enter the glorious Time Out bottle.
