Brainstorming (the process of coming up with ideas, no matter how outlandish, to find one that will help out a negative situation) is what these two parents, Samantha Manville and her husband did, that worked beautifully.
How many times have you thought about penning a note for your kids so they won't wake you up, or bother you when you are working on a project, or when you just don't feel like answering 50 questions.
After all, you may be a parent, but sometimes you still need a moment of peace for yourself.
Kids are lovable and all that, but sometimes they can drive you up the wall.
These two parents who professed they are not late-time people stayed up a little later than usual, and found themselves with a dilemma.
The dilemma was they were off the next day and wanted to sleep a little later than their usual early morning rising.
In essence they needed a break.
The problem was their two kids (Alexia, 10 and Liam, 8) would be up as usual around 7 in the morning.
They brainstormed and came up with a note that would address all the kids needs (which was the hardest part figuring out everything their little minds would come up with), and once they did this they stated to not wake them up unless a real emergency existed.
The kids woke up, read the note, found out it addressed all their wants, needs and wishes.
The couple in turn received their well deserved rest.
