Absolutely wonderful. (Furiously taking notes....)

It is. I'm always pleased to see parents using humor and cleverness to get the point across.
Works so much better than "I'm your parent and you'll do what I say when you live under my roof."

Not that that's not a perfectly valid point-- but it only works once or twice. That other solution makes the point-- pointedly.


It is always better to make chores a game. When our daughter and her husband babysat, their little niece always wanted to play Cinderella. She got to sweep, dust, set the table and help fix dinner. She loved that “game” and so did they.
