Harrison’s Child

My daughter loves watching Peppa Pig, so much so that my wife bought her a few DVDs of it. She also likes playing with the DVD player, with a particular penchant for the stand by button.

These two activities don’t sit particularly well together. Midway through watching, she’ll shuffle across to the DVD player and hit the stand by button and the episode will stop.

Over time, I expect her to learn the correlation between the button-pressing and the ensuing disappointment, a phenomenon I will be writing up and submitting to a science journal, one I will name Harrison’s Child.

After all, I don’t think anyone else has discovered this.
