Tips on curing the ‘I’m firsts’

Rhiannon Hurst of Plainfield says that when her boys were younger they always fought over who was going to be first.

“They fought over who was first in the house, first to play a game, first to brush their teeth. When they were 8 and 6, I got a call from the school. Both of my boys were in the office. They were fighting, pushing and pulling at each other by the front entrance because they both wanted to be first in the building. I decided that enough was enough.”

Hurst says she told her boys that the"F” word was no longer allowed in the house. If they called first, they would be anything but first. And, Hurst also made it a rule, whoever is first in the house has to take the dog out."The boys always let me go in first now.”
