Does anyone else do strange things to get DCs to do what you want??

Crocodilehunter - LOVED your post!! Why did I never think of that.

I recently took to threatening my oldest with a head dunk in the muddy ditch at the end of the garden when he kept throwing hissy fits...he's almost 8 and was acting like a 2yr old IMO.

He didn't think I was serious.....HAHA!

Ended up with my middle two pretending to be grumpy so I'd chase them and pretend to dunk them too. Despite his muddy hair it ment the eldest couldn't possibly stay grumpy when the rest of us were having so much fun grin

I threaten to remove one shoe, when out.

I threaten to remove pillows at night to be earned back.

I've managed to feed ds whilst he was sat in his car seat as I didnt want my dh to have to stop the car!! Worked a treat and be slept the rest of the journey!

Haha, oh god I hope I'm not still having to sing Fraggle Rock at him when he's 15. By that age I want to be choosing to sing it in order to embarrass him grin

Go on Murder - tell us your ds is 15 !

The theme tune to Fraggle Rock is used to get DS to take medicine. Every damn time.

Haha I love it! There's nothing a few beats & a jig can't cheer up!

Lol! I don't think I can top that! But I do sometimes rap and do Irish dancing to dispell arguments.

Just tried this one 10 mins ago!!
Sticking my boob through the side of the crib and feeding my 4mo DS to sleep blush as he will only be fed to sleep and I am scared of Co-sleeping

It bloody worked though grin
