Window sill contest of wills
My girls love to sit on the window sills, so we keep the blinds pulled up about 8-10 inches all the time for them to jump up and watch what's going on outside. They have access to three out of three windows upstairs, and three out of five downstairs. My frustration is that they often try to nudge the blinds out of the way on the two windows I haven't given them access to. We live on a corner lot, so I want to have at least a little privacy in the evening, which is why I keep the blinds down on a couple of the windows. Is there a good way to teach them to stick to the windows I want them in and stay away from the other ones? When I hear/see them poking at the off-limits ones, I usually grab them and put them on the sill of the next closest window that IS allowed. This seems to help for a couple of weeks, and then they get really determined again and I go through the same thing.
