    The last person who pulled this crap over a child, had something REALLY Expansive Broken…
    -
    Another Kid I know, peed on the offender’s leg… Needless to say, the offender NEVER pulled another dirty trick on him again!
    -
    As a kid I hated people mostly grown-ups when they try to bamboozled me… but they soon learned.

    Something besides fruit? Ok, have a carrot. Yeah, my mom did that to me, but I kinda understood.

    any kid reacted those ways would have more than a bamboozle happening to them. They could miss one meal in my books. None of my 4 kids would even THINK of behaving that badly over whining about not getting what they wanted. Breaking things? Peeing on legs? Major infractions in my house and there would be consequences for such bad behaviour.

    Than don’t bamboozle kids in the first place, If no one wants all that happening.

    The parents will win in the end. If you think THAT is being mean, wait till the parents leave their worldly goods to UNICEF rather than a troublemaking kid.

    Bamboozled? She said to name something besides fruit, and Mom did.

    Val mentioned chocolate cake and failed to produce a chocolate cake… Alix’s mistrust in her mom grows and she learn’s never to take her words at face-value.
    -
    Oh well… at least Alix has learned it’s OK to “spin a tale” if it serves her own interest like Holly… after all, who’d better to teach the art of deception than Val.

    My mom would tell me, “If you don’t want apple (or whatever) then you’re not really hungry”. And that was the end on THAT conversation.

    “Bamboozle” my assets! Kids need to learn to be grateful for whatever they have and keep their mouths shut.

    A friend of mine let her kids have cupcakes for dinner on April fools day. They were meatloaf in cupcake wrappers with mash potatoes for icing. She was a bit nuts with the mash potatoes and added a bit of food dye to it to really make it look like icing. The boys LOVED it, so she had to promise to make it again.

    : ) Yup – I got that one, too. And I still say that to myself today. (Thanks, Mom!)

    I do hope you have grown into a much more resourceful person to get what you want/need by now than…

    “…need to learn to be grateful for whatever they have and keep their mouths shut.”
    -
    I always consider that attitude from someone who’s maybe or possibly is a Low/Under-Achiever or just a plain Cheapskate… and not necessarily reliable. Sadly most people are like that…
    -
    Basically, if you don’t have whatever it is want/needed, be honest enough and simply say you don’t have it…
    -
    This is where I learned the old adage, “If you want something done right, do it yourself!”… In this case, “Get it yourself”.
