I haven't figured this out yet . . .

I’m Gonna Beat You

My kids love to race, and thank goodness because it sure comes in useful. It almost doesn’t matter what my kids are doing; if they hear the words, “On your mark, get set, ready, go,” they drop what they’re doing. It has become so useful, that I use it almost every day to get the kids into the bath.

When the kids cry about taking a bath and refuse to leave the living room to go upstairs and jump in, I offer to race them and, voilà, they can’t get up the stairs fast enough.

RaceManipulating your kids into doing what you want is the best feeling in the world . . . besides getting them to do what you want without manipulation.
