Chapel’s mom is a crafty little bugger, huh? I’ve never had a time (that I can think of) when my parents had to trick me into being motivated. Still, I remember that my childhood best friend’s parents would promise him extra mac ‘n’ cheese if he did his chores, and then not actually give him any extra mac ‘n’ cheese. It’s a cruel world when it comes to motivating your children, especially if they wizen up after one too many tricks.
Have your parents ever lured you into doing something on false pretenses? Tell me your anecdotes and feel free to kvetch below!
