Parenting win

This fall D was going through a phase where he never asked for anything, he DEMANDED it. I came up with this reminder to help him change his behavior:

- Friendly face and voice
- Ask, "Could you...?" "Could I...?"
- Reason (give one)
- Thank you (say it)

The genius part is that the acronym spells FART. He makes a grumpy demand. I say, "D, could you FART please?" Hilarity ensues, behavior improves.
