The Blue Dot

"Back in the day" I used to watch the Rosie O'Donnell show. One particular episode I watched had a pivotal effect on my parenting technique...It was when she was talking about one of her kids having a lying problem, or something to that effect. During this same episode she revealed an amazing parenting tool...

"The Blue Dot"


The blue dot, can be used on any small child and can be whipped out at any time. When you "know" your child is tell them you see the blue dot on their forehead.

(Did I mention genius?)

Your child inevitably will look in the mirror for the aforementioned dot, but will be unable to see it, because the sheer genius of this plot is that ONLY Mommy can see it.

Yep, that's right...

You know those times when you think your kid is lying but you can't prove it? A ha...

The beauty of the blue dot is all kids are different.
For Scooter, shoot, he just quit fibbing all together.
Super? Well she spent countless hours trying to scrub the dot off...
Scrap Happy...this is the best(she always cracked us up). When Scooter or Super would come tearing in the room to tattle on the offender...Scrap Happy would come running behind them ready to tell "her side of the story" with her hands OVER her forehead.

Yep...have I mentioned G.E.N.I.U.S. yet????


  1. I also practiced this. But we parents forget that kids learn from my daughter, just like her mommy, tested the reliability of it all by fibing on purpose!! How could I know she was on a "reliability mission"? she wasn't in any trouble! ...she told me just recently; she 16 now.


  2. "Reliability missions!" Fabulous! What a great thing to do! What a smarty pants!
