Something just occurred to when when thinking about trying to get kids to do/not do something: reverse psychology never works.

And I can prove it doesn't work on adults either here:

do not thumb this post.

Ok, gave you a tip instead... and the tip is...

Give a man a fish and he'll smell really bad because there is no where to cook it.

Cheeky, cheeky - you're all about the loophole's aren't you?

[Thanks for the tip by the way - although I do have a place to cook the fish]

Tell your kids I bet they can't clean their rooms this weekend. I know they can't do it, so they shouldn't even try it. Of course, tell them I bet you can't even make sure they get something to eat this weekend either, so they won't eat either... ninja
