Tipping the Chair Back

Tired of saying “One of these days you’re going to fall over and get hurt” like a broken record? Make a hole in four tennis balls and put one on each leg of your kid's chair to make tipping harder. Or, have her sit on a posture ball while studying or during dinner so that she gets used to sitting properly. Once she’s graduated to a normal chair again, let her have a piece of her favorite candy if she makes it through the whole meal completely grounded.
