The Window Treatment

If your kids won’t stop fighting with each other and it’s driving you crazy, here’s a simple way to get them to be friends again:

1. Have one child clean a window from the outside

2. Have the other child clean the same window-at the same time- from the outside

In no time flat, they’ll be laughing, playing and having a great time looking at each other and you’ll be free to get back to your busy schedule of magazine reading!

Yup! It gets them out of the house and away from you. Perfect.

I knew there must be a better option than my whole toss-them-in-the-backyard-and-hose-’em-down routine. The neighbors will stop pointing!

Ok, great. But what if the kid is an only child and it’s ME she’s fighting with?

How will I clean and hold the magazine?!

What if you live on the 12th floor? And neither of your kids is super tall?

Not recommended for people in skyscrapers.

And how did you know about the magazine habit, anyway?
