Playing the Jesus Card- checkmate!
3 signs that your child has superior debating skills
Your child is watching bloody animated dinosaur battles on youtube.
You intervene to stop the viewing and the following dialogue ensues:
‘Please stop watching this video, you will get nightmares’
‘I never have nightmares’ sign #1
‘But this is so violent’
‘Mommy, it is just a cartoon’ sign #2
‘Don’t watch dinosaurs killing each other, it will scare you.’
‘Nothing scares me because Jesus is in my heart, right?’ sign #3
Sign #3 is of particular interest: if your child emphasizes the ‘right?’ at the end of his/her statement, take it as a sign that you are TOAST. The child has learned that you can never beat the Jesus Card and is now using the card to his/her advantage like a master negotiator.
Abort the mission and retreat.
I certainly did.
