How to be an Effective Parent Using only the Word “Bingo”

Hello Dear Readers and welcome to Fish it From the Archives Friday, where we tie a rope around our waists and lower ourselves into a big vat of old posts, fish one out and post it here!  (We also like referring to ourselves in the third person, plural when we do this because sometimes Fridays makes us more weird than we already are.)

How To Be An Effective Parent Using Only The Word “Bingo”

Kid:

“I want a new skateboard!”

Parent:

“Bingo!”

Kid:

“So can I have $80?”

Parent:

“Bingo!”

Kid:

“Do you want me to clean my room first or something?”

Parent:

“Bingo!”

Kid:

“OK, I cleaned my room. Can I have the money now?”

Parent:

“Bingo!”

Kid:

“OK,you want me to get your purse?”

Parent:

“Bingo!”

Kid:

“So where’s the money? Don’t you have $80?”

Parent:

“Bingo!”

Kid:

“Well, you should have said so in the first place because I wouldn’t have cleaned my room if I would have known you didn’t have any money.”

Parent:

“Bingo!”

Until next time . . . I love you
