Yesterday I noticed that my kids crossed the street from behind the school bus they just left without looking.

In the evening I prepared a model of the situation with toys and asked them if they can see the “toy children” from various angles approaching from behind the bus and whenever they said no I drove over the miniatures with another car yelling “Bam, you’re dead”.

I guess that left quite an impression. Especially the little one, after examining the “school bus” model further (a Volkswagen Samba van), went off to build a complete road system with paper and tape in his room and “trained” the rest of the evening how to cross the street – and even some more in the morning after breakfast.

I’m totally going to wait at the kitchen window this afternoon again to see how they’ll do this time.
