“My oldest son, Jethro, has been saving his money for the new iPod touch. Which is really impressive, considering that the iPod touches are upwards of $300. That’s weeks of allowances and a boatload of chores for him. But he’s slowly managed to put the money together.
As he’s gotten closer to the total, though, Jethro’s been trying to finagle his way to getting it sooner. Asking to do even more chores, selling old games/game systems he doesn’t use anymore, and selling some of his “better” clothes to our local secondhand store.”
Ahhhh…kids. Ya gotta love ’em. They certainly have a way about them, don’t they? Especially my boy, Jethro. He really has his own, special way to get what he wants. And you can read all about it in the article, Kids Have Subtle Ways of Getting What They Want (Sometimes), over at parentsociety.com.
