One Time at Banned Camp

Junior melting down at the supermarket? Little One stubbornly refusing to sit on the potty? Desperately wishing someone else would jump in and take over your parental responsibilities during this difficult stage?

Say hello to your new best friends, Wendy Rosen and Susan Ludwig, founders of Seattle's brand new Kinder Obedience Camp (KO Camp), a training facility that helps parents handle the most challenging jobs like potty training, tantrum management, sibling rivalry and bedtime adherence.

Rosen, who spent 10 years as a nanny in Russia and Germany, and Ludwig, a former dog trainer, have developed a proprietary new "child obedience system" that is so effective, they offer a money-back guarantee.

Your role is easy: Drop the kiddos off at the U-district school in the morning and pick them up at the end of the day (for potty training) or later in the week (for tantrum management). Your child will return home fully trained, with a newfound understanding and appreciation for your role as authority figure.

"We thought, it works for puppies, why not children?," says Ludwig of the unique program. And parents seem to agree. Already, the week-old facility has a waiting list for several toddler programs. Summer session registration begins on April 15. Hup, two, three, four!

PS— Mention Red Tricycle when you sign-up and score a free "I survived KO Camp" t-shirt for your Little One.
