Over Thanksgiving with my 10 year old cousin.
  1. Be as animated as possible
    If you don't seem like a coked up Gilmore Girl taking a mile a minute you're doing it wrong.
  2. Be honest
    Because your acting is probably not that good and almost nothing you say can hurt them. Be weary of an "Awwwww" track played over their melancholy face though. Then you've crossed the line.
  3. Disobey any very direct instructions
    They'll just say something sassy to you in response, don't worry about it!
  4. Sing
    Any chance you get. To them. With them. About them. It doesn't matter just as long as the song will be stuck in their head for the next year.
