I have this kind of kitchen faucet i am trying to teach young kids not to turn it on full blast when doing dishes and use less water Any idea ....
I know I can turn the pressure low but that wont teach them anything
Get a dishwasher.
Any solution that relies on everybody in the entire world doing something is not a good solution, particularly if that thing is annoying or inconvenient.
If you want to save water and energy washing dishes, then get a dishwasher. It can wash dishes better than you can, because it filters and recirculates the water instead of pouring it down the drain.
Maybe a switch that will actuate an electric fence unit if lifted too high?
Copper plate what mains positive hooked up screwed to wall behind faucet so lifting it too high completes the circuit to earth?
Bear trap screwed to wall in same position?
Possibilities seem endless, OP. Where's the hard bit?
Glue a spoon under the spot the water hits the bottom of the sink. Turning water on gently will result in a mild sprayback, not enough to drench the place, just enough to remind the user to swivel the faucet a few degrees.
Turning the water on full blast will result in a spectacular soaking for the careless user. Cleaning up the resultant spill will reinforce the lesson.
if you are into plumbing you can just add a pressure reducer under the sink. you don't need high pressure on your taps anyway do you? what for? i have a miniature hosepipe under my sink that will reach just about anywhere on the ground floor of my house in case of fire so don't tell me filling up saucepans for firefighting.
on the end of the nozzle where the water comes out there might be a screw on thing that makes the water come out funny, an airator or something. you can unscrew it and replace it with a water saving one which again reduces the aperture essentially and therefore pressure
>washing dishes in the sink
>get a dishwasher
ffs dont you realise its the 21st century?
what am i some fucking pleb washing my own dishes?
and do you really want to crawl around filling a dishwasher with salt and shit and it all stinking of shit and ruining your posh glasses?
you have one set of fancy tableware that you never use because you never have people over and the rest of the time you just use kids paper party plates and cups, then just throw them in the trash. or recycling i guess if you are some eco freak. great fun with all the different designs they have. supermarket near me has a pirate set which is really cool.
but i fully support you making your kids wash dishes. good for you.

Get the fuck off my lawn you little shit.
OK, looks like this will be the first *helpful* answer...
I had this problem when my young kids wanted to play with their water toys in the sink - mostly hotwheels cars that change color with warm or cold water...
anyway, you can turn the shutoff valves half way or 3/4 of the way off. this does restrict the amount of water that can get to the faucet. they can turn the faucet handle all the way on but the flow of water will not increase beyond what is being allowed thru the shutoffs. of course when you do want to run the faucet at full tilt you will have to turn the valves back all the way open.
so maybe not a *convenient* solution but it will do the trick and does not involve doing anything other then turning two valves.
for what its worth I do not have a dishwasher either (by choice). four of us in the house and its really not such a super big deal to wash the dishes 'by hand'. seriously, takes but 15, maybe 20 minutes tops.
and just as an added bonus; no garbage disposal either.
