it's my secret go-to to get the kids to not lie to me. i know. i know. i know. stop saying it. i know. it's weird and kind of well, weird. it just happened one day. it just popped out. and it worked. and it's worked every single time since.
i was asking someone about something and they were clearly lying. i work security at work and for some reason i just said "tell me or i'll review the video". and omg it worked. guys. it worked. it works.
chloe was at the table being a brat and saying "nuh uh" at everything one of her brothers or sister said to her.
chloe: "nuh uh"
me: "chloe knock it off. be nice to your family".
someone else. "blah blah blah."
chloe: "nuh uh!"
me: "chloe come here!!! did you just say nuh uh after i told you not to."
me: "chloe, i'm going to review the video."
chloe: "i did."
me: "go to bed."
see?? totally works.
do you use anything wacky to get your kids to behave or tell the truth?
