No, not amazing, not sure it would work with mine either. I usually parent by gut-instinct, and that was my gut-instinct to that type of situation (which I have seen at preschool - different as many pointed out from daycare!)

Always helpful to get a reality check from more experienced moms! I'd much rather learn that a tactic won't work from here instead of the 'live & learn' way!
