What’s your best ‘parenting trick’?

DRINK! I’m just kidding. I have to agree with this article. My kids loved anything from pots and pans to plastic containers. And lets not forget boxes. Our two youngest are 9 and just turned 6 and this summer we had to get a new wash machine. We were the last stop for Sears and they happily left all the empty boxes from their days work. I had every kid in the neighborhood over painting, coloring with crayons and chalk all over their “houses”. This lasted about 5 days till rain. From morning thru night they were occupied and having loads of fun!
