The “C” Card

Well, I think I have a way to get my kids to listen to me…. better.

Me: Could you please empty the dishwasher?

Kid 1: Why do I have to do it?

Me: Every time you argue back with me it takes a day off my life.

……

Me: Stop arguing with your sister!!

Kid 2: I can’t stand him!

Kid 3: shut up!

Me: Every time you two fight, it takes a day off my life.

Now, it’s probably doing more harm than good… but the dishwasher is clean and the kids have retreated to their own rooms.
