The Best Time To Debate
I have come to learn that the best time to debate kids or family members is when they have food in their mouth- Kenneth Cole
Very true indeed, which I have to agree 100% of this family quote.
I always had a hard time to talk some sense into my kids brain.
Everything that goes in, goes out immediately. It is difficult to debate with family members when they are born with tons of excuses and reasons to avoid listening to my instructions or nags.
Kids are notorious at home. They always had the nerve to answer back at parents, have lots of non logical excuses and non existent facts that I couldn’t believe that I am hearing them.
If you want to give instructions, make sure that your kids understand them and remember to complete their tasks.
It is best to find the suitable time when they are quiet and seated, not walking around doing their own stuff
Choose the best time
The best time to debate with your family members is dinner time, when they have food stuck in their mouths. It is rude to speak with your mouth full, everyone knows that.
Dinner time is the time when everyone sits down together around the dining table and behave extremely well, as good as angels.
This is the best time to negotiate with them, discuss problems and get them to listen to you instead of bickering with each other, pushing the blame to one another is their bad habit.
When they are eating, with food in their mouth, they either had to agree to your commands or just keep mum until they had finished their meal.
With food in your kids mouth, they can’t rebuke your instructions, answer back (talk back )to your questions, push the blame to one another ( the usual phrase: not me, I didn’t do it ), give lots of excuses ( another usual excuse: I am busy, got work to do, etc )
Debating with your family members
Kids and teens aren’t stupid and they are not naive as you were during your young days.
They are clever, witty and sly ( Do I sound very bad ?) but these are the truth.
Instruct your kids to perform a simple task and they will give you lots of excuses to avoid it.
They are smart.
When you are not looking, your kids will be doing something else that they shouldn’t do ( SMS, playing video games, Facebook , online chatting, etc ).
Once you give out your instructions, they will give you lots of excuses that you can’t disagree ( homework, projects, workload).
When will we ever outsmart our own kids?
Dinner time, when they have food in their mouths, no way to answer back!
Do as I command!
