My kids, who usually get on so beautifully together, have been at each other all week. It’s driving my absolutely batty! Well today, I had had enough so I sent them outside on a ‘lock out’. No coming inside except for the loo! At first I thought it was going to be a failure as I could still here them fighting for the first 15 minutes or so. Then something wonderful happened, they stopped bickering and started to play a made up game. And they played and played and played. I am loving lock out!

  • Lock out sounds like a great plan. I wonder if it will work for the rest of us mums? Worth a shot!


  • That’s a great idea. I’m trying this.


  • Sadly, it’s raining here so I can’t try this!
