Your kid wants to stay up late, avoid homework, hang out with friends, and watch TV and play video games. In short, your school-aged child wants to do everything but go to bed early and do schoolwork. What's more, he has lots of clever ways to wear you down and get his way.

Oh no! What do you do to keep your kids from manipulating you?

I am very blunt with my children and call them out on their sh*t when they start up with things like that, which I know some parents take issue to, but as a result I don't really have much of a problem with my kids in this regard. They do their homework and go to bed.
