    Michael is so gullible.
    The proper answer to “WILL you empty the dishwasher?” is
    “Yes.”
    And then, some time later, when Grandma asks again, “I will. Eventually.” Which immediately results in “DO IT NOW!!!”

    What Michael needs is good swat on the bottom and then maybe he would learn to respect his granny and do what is asked of him.

    As I have told my wife so many times, “Ask the question you want answered.”

    Don’t ask, just say “I want you to unload the dishwasher”, or whatever the task is.

    my friend once said to me “I don’t understand why parents ask their kids to do things. Just TELL them to do it!”

    And don’t ask a question if you don’t want to know the answer.

    Yes, I know this is just a comic strip but, you would think ,after all this time, Grandma would know how Michael would think. Tell him what you want him to do. You know he’s a smart a**.

    So you believe that physical abuse is justifiable but not doing as your told is not?

    A ‘Good swat on the bottom’ is not abuse.
    And Jean did mention that perhaps Michael would do as he was told, which is the desireable outcome.
    .
    Know which buttons to push on your kids so they will respect and obey you.
    .
    Some respond to a swat, some laugh at a swat or even a spanking. Some respond to the “you have disappointed me” speech, and others would rather get a ‘beating’ than ‘the lecture’. Some respond to the time out (with or without a timer, depending) and others need to have a beloved toy removed for a time.
    .
    Oh, btw, all my kids resemble my icon.
    And I Am the Alpha Female.

    And, no, I do not beat them to get them to be (mostly) obedient

    My brother didn’t respond to repeated severe beatings from my mother. I just ran away from home after seeing that. That was my response.
