Description

The Book Your Children Don’t Want You to Read
 
This revised and updated edition of How to Con Your Kid is the most useful (and sneakiest) parenting manual you’ll ever purchase. Here are hundreds of tips, techniques, and simple scams for getting your child to do exactly what you want—at mealtime, bedtime, bathtime, and beyond. You’ll learn how to:

     •  Con your kid into eating by playing on his possessiveness.
     •  Con your kid into bathing by “swimming” in the tub.
     •  Con your kid into talking quietly by whispering back.
     •  Con your kid into returning your iDevice—by any means possible!

And dozens more tricks of the parenting trade!
