You look with your EYES not your FINGERS!

I heard this in a store the other day. A mom was talking to her 4-ish year old who was reaching for the perfume bottles. I LOVE IT! I am so stealing that one. Heard any good ones and 'stole' them to use on your kids?

  • I'm stealing it now. I might even use it on my husband.

  • My mother said it to me and I use it with my girls. "Look with your eyes not with your hands". It works too! They stop reaching for the stuff.

  • I always tell my daughter 'we see with our eyes, not with our hands'. It works for me haha! Don't remember where I heard it from though, but wherever I did it stuck with me.

  • Oh yes, I use that "look with your eyes not your fingers" with my kids! As for other good sayings I have heard..... I can't think of one right now.

  • I use that saying with my kids all the time. I can not think of any others that I have stolen.
