Mom’s Cd Repeats The Sounding Nag

Sun., Dec. 1, 1996

Tired of nagging your kids?

So was Rowena Starling. She recorded her top 24 nags on a compact disc to save herself and other weary parents from the same old refrains:

Clean your room. Take out the trash. Mow the lawn.

The painter said she came up with the idea after telling her 8-year-old son to do something for the umpteenth time.

“Finally, it just hit me like a ton of bricks. Why don’t I record this?” she said. She is selling “I’ll Say It Again” for $11.95.

Every dreadful chore is covered on the recording.

“I put the CD on and my son knows there will be punishment if the chores don’t get done,” she said.

The CD may be punishment enough. What 8-year-old wants to hear “Stop that noise! Stop that noise! Stop that noise! Stop that noise! Stop that noise!”?
