My kids, and I think all kids, can sense when a parent wants to be left alone. Like a horse who can sense fear, a kid can sense a parent desperately in need of some personal time and space. And they do the opposite of what’s needed: they cling and/or get louder and more annoying. But never fear, I have an idea that will fix what calm parental requests, and then yelling and threats, cannot.
Introducing…. “BeGone, Spawn!” I imagine it as an organic, homeopathic spray that can be spritzed at or around the offending child to encourage them to go away. There can be an choice of scents to help your kid to back the hell off. I’m thinking the smells of vegetables and cleanliness ought to do it, and maybe the bottle can make a sound like nail clippers. Add in some lavender for calming and some fab packaging and I think we’ve got a winner. Who’s in?
