@esuhl: But I can’t really take away the living room TV from them.
got one free not long ago
I'd love to know the answer to this one.
Just read about Lime Plugs, which could be a goer if free, but presumably it wouldn't help for computers and the like.
That should teach them!
I told mine if they didn't turn them off, there could be a fire and we could lose everything or all be killed.
They're 15 and 13 now, so all moany and hormonal, but they never forget to turn their plugs off at night!
Thanks! I looked it up. It looks quite good but I don’t think it will help me as my problem is that I need to chase around after my kids and switch them off for them! Does anyone know anything that can turn them off automatically when I’m not around?
I hate to say it, but couldn't your kids turn them off? As previous posts have suggested some simple negative reinforcement often works wonders. Mine lost their DSi's for a week and had to earn them back for this very same thing, earned them back in 2 days, not a problem since, although they knew that I would escalate if they didn't do it until their rooms were empty!!
Worth giving a try, although expect some grief at first!
