We really thought we were being smart. How many parents have thought the same thing at one time or another? It made sense to use our son’s natural precociousness to help overcome one of his biggest challenges. Since he has known his numbers from a very early age (counting, recognizing the number, reading and spelling the words) we brilliantly thought we’d try to get our painfully early riser to stay in bed until the clock read “Six – Zero – Zero”. Great idea, right? Bang! (that was the sound of it backfiring).
He is now obsessed with clocks reading six o’clock.
“Want it say six zero zero.”
