I can verify this. When I was a parent who was called upon as a resource,
I thought I "invented" the same idea. It was astonishingly simple and so
very well received. For some reason, my "genius" idea was never carried
on. Different t strokes for different folks I guess. I was pleased to
read that "my" idea finally got the recognition it deserved! :-)
