Amma: Pappa, can you please do me a help?
Adi: NNOOO (totally expected)
Amma: Oh thank you so much pappa. Actually I don’t want you to do it and I was eagerly waiting for you to say No. Thank you cutie pie!!
Curious Adi: What do you want me to do?
Amma: Never mind. I didn’t want you do it and you will not do it.
Adi: No, I will do it. Tell me what is it?
Amma: Its okay pappa. Forget it
Adi: Tell me amma. what is it?
Amma: Can you do this for me? I know you will not.
Adi: I will do it (and jumps right into the task)
She doesn’t know that Amma was so desperate in getting that task done from her.
No matter how dump or innocent you were in your BC (Before Child) life, Mommy hood will give you real time training on child psychology. Agree?
So this works till they are 8.5 years old? Do keep me updated when this technique fails – phew!
it doesn’t work always though.. did you see the title “glad it works sometimes” the technique varies depending on the situation and their mood.. sometimes we play “opposite day” when I say “don’t do this” she gets confused and do it 🙂
All I can guarantee is that one day down the road we can challenge the best child pshycologist in town with our techniques 🙂
Wow! you give me hope..it works till they are 8.5 years..awesome 🙂
don’t have much hope lady.. the techniques differ for every child and they may outgrow it at any age. it also depends on their mood. read my reply to Vinitha.. 🙂
Ha ha ha. Clever you!
We have to be to deal with a clever child!!!

hope this will help you sometimes 🙂 🙂
Comfy, quickly writes it down in her black book. Need to try this ASAP 😀 😀
