JD's curiousity is starting to creep into mischeviousness, on occasion, so I figured it was time to lay down some early discipline markers. As a test bed, I decided to make the sound cable on my computer forbidden to touch. I let JD play with all the other things on the desk, but as his hand reaches for the very tempting cable at the front, he gets a firm, "No!" from Daddy! The first couple of times, that was enough. The third time it needed a tap on the hand from my finger. A pause. And then some crying from the shock. Since then, the "No"" has been enough of a reminder. But he does still insist on sneaking his little hand out to try and grab that cable whenever he can, testing my concentration and resolve. I suspect this will be the first of many contests of will. Game on, JD!!

But did you do it in English & Chinese? Else the poor lad will associate the english language as something bad.
