I negotiation with my children everyday. We negotiate homework, meals, baths, bedtimes... For my children it has never been simply, "because mommy said so." They have all practiced the art of negotiation.
I supposed they have learned from the best because I taught them to use negotiation to get closer to what they want. I negotiate with hubbs and family to get in runs when I need a break from pushing the jogger or whenever I need help to be able to run a race.
So this should have been no suprise.
Littlest employed the cutest-eyes-ever technique to get to stay on a relatives new 'toy' 4 wheeler.
When that started to grow old for Mommy, he attempted the often successful head-tilt-puppy-eyes-beggin-face. That bought him a few more minutes.
But finally he had to bring out the BIG guns. The I'll-give-you-a-kiss-if-you-give-me-what-I-want face. That's a winner ever time!
What's your or your kids best and most successful 'begging' strategy?
We got out this morning for another wake up run! I didn't have to negotiate to get littlest to agree. He woke up ready to go! Yippee. Maybe I can make it a week straight of wake up runs!?! 3.5 miles (29:35) Tonight is another double so I am looking forward to a great sweat. The temps are to be in the low 90s again today.
What's on your workout plan for today? What kinds of temps are you enjoying?
