I never thought this would work

But it has! A few weeks back, completely out of frustration with the amount of name calling going on, I told the boys that we had a new house rule. That anytime you called someone a name, it bounced off them and stuck back on you. (Original, huh??) Well, dang it if it did not work! Whenever one of the boys calls the other one a name, I just have to ask him why he is calling himself a name. They actually get mad at themselves and immediately stop. Who woulda thunk?

If only everything was this easy...
