Working with a one year-old's light switch obsession
Kris's light switch hack keeps her son happy (for a while at least!):
My one year old son is enthralled with being helpful by turning on and off the lights in every room when we enter or exit. The only problem is, "on" is a lot harder to master than "off" and he gets very frustrated. The hack- turn him UPSIDE DOWN! The motion then becomes the same- he just has to push his finger down rather than trying to position it under the switch and lift up. As a bonus, he currently thinks being upside down is hilarious. A win-win situation.
