Have you been asked if you want to build a snowman every day for months? Are your waking hours filled with the sounds of children singing about sandwiches? When frustrated, are you frequently told to "let it go"? If so, you've come to the right place. Like millions of parents worldwide, you're experiencing a common condition: household Frozen addiction.
Don't panic! We're here to help walk you through this trying time, determining the best way to handle your kids' Disney film dependency. While your family pet might have already been renamed "Olaf," you can still save your own sanity by following these tips!
Encourage Silent Interpretive Dance
If one more rendition of "Let It Go" is going to be your tipping point, ask your little ones to dance the song instead of singing it.
Cover Your Ears
Scarves, turtleneck sweaters, whatever it takes — you won't be able to hear the songs if there are 15 layers of fabric covering your ears.
Don't Let Anybody Know That You're Losing It
If you put on a happy face, nobody will ask what's wrong. Therefore, you won't have to explain how Anna and Elsa are ruining your life.
Render Them Speechless by Singing Even Louder
The next time your child launches into a rendition of "For the First Time in Forever," outsing them. They'll be so shocked and embarrassed by your antics that they will never sing again.
Don't Let the Kids Into the Living Room
They can't sing along to the movie if they can't reach the TV, right?
Overwhelm Them With Other Movies
Because nobody can sing "Do You Want to Build a Snowman" when they have "Hakuna Matata" stuck in their head.
Outlaw the F-Word
. . . and by "the F-word," we mean "frozen." This isn't a permanent solution (you'll obviously need to make a fro-yo run in the future), but desperate times call for desperate measures.
Bribe Them With Ice Cream
We're not above buying silence with Baskin Robbins. OK, OK . . . so maybe this isn't the best option.
Move Somewhere Too Warm For Snow
Nobody can build a snowman in Tahiti.
Barricade Yourself in Another Room
"Conceal, don't feel, don't let them know . . . " that you're actually going crazy from all the Frozen references.
Destroy the Television
"Sorry kids, but the TV is stuck in an eternal Winter."
Live in Denial
Go to your happy place, which obviously isn't Arendelle.
