Reverse Psychology

We have a toddler in the house who is going through the terrible twos. He is asserting his independence by saying no to every thing. You can even offer him a bag of cookies, and he will refuse them on general principles.

Our work around for this stage has been using reverse psychology. I will say, "You can't get dressed. These are daddy's clothes"! It works with food and car trips too. Perhaps this strategy might work with some of our representatives in Washington.

"You can't have a fourth amendment. That doesn't belong to you. Bad blue dog democrat"!

Just a thought.
