Through out the day, one ear and if possible one eye must be on your child while you work. Communicate with your child while you work and instill the off limit rules at the same time.

... We just need to get on a common playing field and by that I refer to the common denominator. Specifically, we want the lowest common denominator, or LCD, for short.
