However, until that children’s book is published I am left to my own devices. I have been trying different tactics to see what elicits some interest from my target audience. More on that later.
And while I’m not deliberately trying to persuade my kids one way or the other, I do start off the lecture by holding up this stuffed animal and telling them that if they fail to see the logic in what I am saying the monkey loses a finger. This works wonders in getting my point across, especially after the part where I tell them that the monkey is actually a relative.
