I will say that once, the 5y/o turned off the power conditioner (I think he was 4 at the time). He did not get into "trouble", but he was told to not do it again. I mean, after all, it only interrupted his TV watching. He didn't do it again, not once. Now I have a 10 month old who is starting to walk around. Good parenting or not, it would be more than inconvenient to have to turn it all back on every time he turns it off. It will also, in my opinion, be a bit safer for him to not have access to those electronics until he is older. With another one on the way, I think the day it took to redo the rack was worth it, "good" parenting or not.

Secondly, this actually places all the things that people actually need to access at the bottom (gaming systems and drawers). There is little to no reason for anyone to ever touch the reciever, power conditioner/UPS, or HTPC. We have a remote for accessing those.

But I would really like to thank you for judging my parenting skills based on 1 post in a forum. Bravo for you

*and if I seem a bit peeved off, it's because I am. And you can keep your 2¢

Sorry. My remark(s) weren't intended to judge or peeve you off, rather to point out that children should be raised to respect other's property. Anyway, it works for you. So back to the topic.

Accidents happen with little kids, that's just life. You can take action to minimize those, like using tamper resistant electrical outlets, keeping medicine and cleaning products that they may consume out of their reach, etc. Sir Meilie seems like the kind of parent that wisely takes precautions which frankly is good parenting.

As a maintenance man for a large retirement community I know only these three things:

1) If it doesn't move (and should) use WD-40.
2) If it does move (and shouldn't) use duct tape.
3) Payday is Friday.

I'm confused, does 1 - 3 apply just to the retirees or the facilities as well?

Is it solipsistic in here, or is it just me?
