Disc Jockey

This morning my son was pulling CD jewel cases off of the shelf one by one and playing with them on the floor. This is not new, and though it's not encouraged I was busy enough getting ready for work not to stop him. When I briefly left the room I was startled to hear music coming from somewhere. I peered around the corner and sure enough he had turned on the stereo. And while he hadn't actually tried to put a CD in he had removed one from its case, and was lifting it up toward the player. Ladies and gentlemen, this is a person not yet sixty weeks old. He was most distressed when I pried the CD, somewhat the worse for wear, from his eager hand. How to explain to him that he shouldn't really be trying to do this just yet?
