It's definitely not in any of the 'good parenting' manuals, but sometimes, when your little monkey
drives you to despair and frustration get's the better of you, a very blatant (not true) bribe roles off the tip of your tongue. Here are a few that we've used, ring any bells?
1: "If you go back to your own bed (it's 3:30am) I'll make you the
world's biggest chocolate cake for breakfast"
2: "You can have every single toy that you've seen advertised on TV,
if we can turn it off and go to the park"
3: "If you stop screaming and kicking and leave the play ground right now
you can wear your Ben 10 costume for the next week, including Saturday's wedding"
4: "You can have hot dogs for every single meal ever, but please just eat one bite of broccoli"
5: "Scooby Doo says he'll visit if you stop fighting me while I'm trying to get you dressed"
6: "You will turn into Batman if you eat all your breakfast"
7: "Stop pestering me and you can go to Disney World Florida after I've finished writing this post"
