If you tell your daughter that she does not have to go to school but that she may not be in the house for the 8 hours that she would be at school (and you be sure that you’ve got her iPod in your pocket) and it’s cold and rainy outside it will only take her about 15 minutes to give up and go to school.

(I wonder how that scene will play out in her movie?)

    I think this is a fantastic idea. I’ll keep it packed away for when my son tries that.

    Clever. You should write a handbook.

    I should have thought of this a long time ago.

    Or threaten to inject her with Botox. Wait, no. That will get you in trouble. Nevermind. Your solution is excellent.
