Question

This is a question for those of you who have successfully civilized small children:

How many times, exactly, do you have to say, "Shut that door behind you, please," before they actually do it without being told?

I'm just wondering.

You mean they'll actually do it?

Once they start paying their own heating/cooling bills, mostly.

I'm so sorry, I have teenagers and I'm still doing this. I'm guessing what Bardiac said.

Um, since Grandad and Dad are still doing it, I think the cause is lost in my house. . .

Years. Seriously.

Yeah, I was going to say something but then I realized you used the word "successfully."
