Power Pointer lets kids see parents' instructions What's a Power Pointer?

- A pet peeve* reducer for Mom or Dad
- A parent’s tool to clearly communicate your recurring instructions
- An easy way to teach responsibility to your child
- A reminder to congratulate kids on a job well done.

All of the above!

Power Pointers ease family organization and help strengthen relationships between Mom, Dad, and the kids. (*A pet peeve is an actual or missing behavior that makes you angry. Ex. Not flushing toilets)

Make Power Pointers Enticing

Help kids catch the vision that your instructions are their road to greater freedom and opportunity. Parents’ recurring instructions train for adulthood and help develop skills

- to care for oneself (hygiene)
- to manage one’s responsibilities (homework, chores, thinking ahead)
- to live in harmony with other people (respecting people and common areas)
Think about it. Who wants a colleague with bad breath who arrives late?
