Questions Answered

Last night Heidi and I attended our first orientation meeting formally introducing us to Arbonne

On the home front, Thomas has learned a new trick. He screeches, blood curdling screeches that make your eardrums bleed. Short high decibel outbursts that get the attention of everyone within a five mile radius. In the beginning I thought his brother was lighting him on fire or the dog was eating his feet. Now, I know it is just an attention grab, the child screeches and when you make eye contact he smiles at you. and its business model. The presentation was very well done and the people in attendance made me feel comfortable. There are systems in place that if followed have proven to be very successful. I can follow directions and I am a fast learner, last night shed light on the future. Coming out of the dark and seeing the path before me makes sleep much easier. Now it is just a matter of getting down to "bidness".
This is going to change, the behavior modification started last night at dinner. The screech is not met with concern anymore, the screech is met with a reprimand and an angry face. I hope it works because this screeching rubs nerves raw, I don't think Heidi can take much more of it.

If the reprimand doesn't work, a dab of hot sauce on the tongue will nip it in the bud. Approved by a pediatrician (my hubby had me check). A friend taught me the trick and would keep a packet of Taco Bell hot sauce in the diaper bag to place on the table at restaurants as a reminder for their screamer.
