Not So Veiled Threat.

Dear Sage, some parents threaten their kids with spanking if they want their kids to toe the line. That kind of threat hardly works on you. But this one does:

Sage: Dad I want to watch TV

Dad: (eyes fixed on the screen watching) I'm turning this off after 5 minutes. You have to sleep

Sage: BUT DAD!!! I WANNA WATCH TV!!! (on the verge of tantrum)

Dad: If you don't listen and obey,
I'M NOT GOING TO LET YOU GO TO SCHOOL TOMORROW.

Sage: (gasp) huhuhu! okey. Lies down and finally sleeps.

I hope this threat will still be effective even when you're already in Pre-Med

Wow! Your kid sure likes school so much, that you can use that as a bargaining chip,haha. :D

Some kids would be jumping for joy! :D

I have set a 9:00 pm rule with my kids. That's their bedtime and they know they can't watch TV beyond that point. But it's good that she likes school that much. :)

When does the threat ends?
