SHIT I DO TO GET KIDS TO DO SHIT
I'm a nanny. I do what needs to be done.
- •EmpowermentMake the little shit feel good about themselves "Hey it would be really cool and mature of you to stop trying to grab the poop out of your diaper"
- •ReasoningTry and instill some basic understanding of how the world works "You know, when you decide to hurl yourself off your high chair the laws of physics clearly state you will hurt your ass"
- •Hold Something HostageWhen other methods fail- I usually attempt to hold one of their beloved items hostage "Buzzlightyear will be released from the jail (aka out from under my ass), but only if you shove those peas into your pie hole by the time I count to three"
- •BriberyThis is the shittiest of all ways to get a kid to do something, ironically it's also the most effective "You can have my mind, body, and soul if you shut the fuck up for a few hours... No? Ok. How about chocolate and TV?"
- •Ignorance is BlissSelf explanatory.
