It Isn’t Brain Surgery… But It Could Be

As a parent, it’s sometimes hard to know if your kids are really listening to you. There is plenty of anecdotal evidence to suggest they aren’t.

So when Natalie would tell her 6-year-old “You could crack your head open!”, she wasn’t sure if her daughter was getting the message.

Now she’s sure. GN was definitely listening. And then some.

I should wear a helmet because: so I will not crack my head open & have brain surgery.

The National Council for Scaring Children into Practicing Healthy Habits has found its newest spokesperson, and, for a minimal appearance fee, GN is available to talk to your children about wearing their helmets, as well as other topics, such as eating their vegetables, toothbrushing, and crossing their eyes.

And you can’t imagine what she has to say about BB guns.
