Me: [Son's name] - go brush your teeth!
Son: I just have to :
- finish this page of my book
- finish watching this episode
- finish throwing this ball
- go look at this thing [repeat and choose another excuse]
Now I'm sure this is common for this age group and I don't doubt I was similar.
My question is: How do I get my 7YO son to [do thing he doesn't want to] when he offers a sequence of excuses?
