Not too long ago, Adrianna discovered the power button on our TV. Now we have a difficult time keeping her away from it. She enjoys turning the TV off and on, over and over again. This is especially frustrating when we are in the middle of actually watching a TV show. Thank goodness for tivo, so at least we can see what we miss when she turns it off.
Telling her, “NO!” only seems to encourage her. Distraction doesn’t work. She quickly toddles back to the TV, her pointer-finger at the ready. When we see her finger reaching for the power button, we have tried lightly smacking her hand while saying, “NO.” This also doesn’t work. When I was trying this today, she actually started holding out her other hand for me so I could smack it, knowing what was coming. Hmmm… Little punk. I think we are just going to invest in one of those clear, plastic covers that you can place over the TV panel to keep little fingers away.
