Child-locking!

There was a Dennis the Menace cartoon in which Dennis' father was trying to open a medicine bottle, saying, "How do you open this child-proof bottle?" And Dennis walks in through the door, saying, "Lemme show ya!"

Not too far-fetched, I realized, when my then ten-year-old cousin taught his mother how to use the child-locking facility for TV channels, in their new TV set.

So it didn't really come as a complete surprise, when, after "helping" me load the washing machine, Puttachi reached out and tried to activate the child lock!

Really.
Nowadays, children are proving to be increasingly fascinating and intelligent.
My 4 children, the oldest 8 years knows everything. The youngest, only 2 year old, learning more each day. Are the children of the future!
God blessed you!
