  • I don't mean STARVE him of course but have him skip a snack so he's nice and hungry .... and lock him in the highchair with something like noodles. This might buy you 20 minutes? Then into the tub....... minimal water. Or a kiddie pool? Water table? Something new/different/exciting........ or pop in a movie. Or, sadly, wait til he goes nite nites

  • would it work for you to wait until after your kid's bedtime to do your homework?

  • I would have several activities lined up. Maybe blocks for a little while, then coloring for a little while, etc etc. Does she take a nap? Or you are probably in school during that time. Man, just realized I'm going to have to deal with this soon, too. Good luck!

  • Wow! 17 class hours plus 51 hours of studying/homework. You need a babysitter and housekeeper.
