With all the toys Fletcher has, the one thing he wants EVERY morning is the remote. After trying to "hide" it from him, I eventually give in because he destroys everything in sight just to get to it. If he doesn't get it, he gets very angry. Since he loves to push the buttons, I quickly realized that I need to take the batteries out so he can't crank up the volume or change the channel. We have tried to give him his own real remote that we don't use, but obviously it isn't the same as the one we use to actually turn on the tv.
