Don't cross the yellow line

 Funny thing about kids...if you tell them not to cross the yellow line, they will see how close to the line they can get without going over.  There could be plenty of room on their "side" but it's not nearly as enticing as that forbidden yellow line.

Testing's what kids do.  And what do Mom's do?  They are consistent.  They set the boundaries and see to it that they are respected and obeyed.

The "yellow line" represents safety.  Kids don't understand where danger exists so it's up to us to set boundaries for them and help them learn that the safest place to be is far away from that yellow line.

Wouldn't it be nice if all dangers were marked with yellow lines?
