Publisher Comments:

Children bring boundless joy into your life. They also bring temper tantrums, stubborn moods, and 90-decibel fits of hysterical screaming. Think we're exaggerating? Just try getting one to finish his dinner. It's time to spare the aggravation and take some action. How to Con Your Kidshows how parents can con their toddlers to do anything and we mean anything. Want your kid to try broccoli? Serve her a plate of "baby trees." Want her to take a bath? Put on a bathing suit and go "swimming" together. From simple "short cons" to more elaborate, step-by-step scams, How to Con Your Kidfeatures tricks and tips for the home, travel, school, daycare, and more. - Get your kid to help with chores by naming him "Mom's Special Assistant." - Get your kid moving by racing her to the corner. - Get your kid to share by suggesting he trade instead. Plus, for those rare moments when everything fails, we've included two sheets of "bribe stickers" guaranteed to transform the most terrible toddler into a well-behaved angel.
