When will television makers learn to put the ON/OFF button on the BACK of the box? Posted by Picasa

    Oh no!! Please tell Liam not to teach this one to Devin! We are having a hard enough time with the remotes! :)

    Looks like you have one of those "MANLY" TVs so I don't know if this will work or not, but they do make this handy dandy little gadget that covers the buttons of TVs so that toddlers cannot push the buttons. It's basicly a clear piece of plastic that is in the sahpe of an "L". You slip on side under the TV and the other covers the buttons. But it doesn't always work with every TV. Good luck!

    Adorable! LittleMan loves the remote AND the TV buttons. It's cute for a while, then it becomes annoying!

    We've told the girls that the TV is wired so that if they touch it, they will be electrocuted. Seems to work pretty well.

    Oh, be quiet, I'm just kidding.

    One of the house rules around here, though, is that only adults are allowed to touch the TV. It works pretty well, but every now and then, we find a suspicious handprint on the screen protector.

    This is a problem in our house as well. Excpet when he wants it off. he WANTS IT OFF. AAAaiiieeeeee. Sorry. I am sure you hear the screaming enough in your own house.

    Steph - Devin will learn soon enough on his own. I'd worry more about him running the switches on daddy's mixing boards.

    Melissa - It's annoying now!

    Maria - So does the electicution work in tandem with those shock collars you've been using?

    William - Yes I can hear Max screaming all the way at my house so please ask him to stop - Liam keeps chiming in and it's setting off the car alarms. These guys can be Little Tyrants.

    The shock collars we working fabulously, especially when Anna started getting slow about getting my beer out of the fridge on demand.

    However, I found out that CPS frowns on shock collars, so we switched to a cattle prod. I don't like it as much since I actually have to get off of the couch to use it.
