When you’re reading stories to kids at bedtime, you may as well start early in the morning, because it’s their most favorite activity of the day. And why not? They get a great story (or two or three) without having to read it themselves, mom or dad is willing to do whatever it takes, and they focus completely on the child. He doesn’t want a good time like that to ever end. Is there any wonder it takes so long to get children to fall asleep?
What we need is an activity that makes children wind down and get sleepy, but isn’t so pleasant as to make them want to prolong it. When a child gets to a certain age, a parent discovers that magical activity: homework. This comic is from the ever-relatable Lunarbaboon.
