Why I Am A Horrible Father – Reason # 53 – AKA: When “Go ask your Mother” just won’t do

The best way to handle when your teenage child is pestering you about something they want (but you don’t want them to have it), is to redirect the conversation.  I have found the single best conversation-ender known to fatherhood.  Behold!

Teenage Child: “Daaayaaaddd!  I really want a car, you need to buy me one!”

Horrible Father: “Well, we need to talk about something important first.  You see, when a mommy and a daddy love each other….”

Teenage Child: “Ugh…dad, I already had this talk with mom!  Forget it, I’ll take the bus to school.”

Works every time.
