Don’t strangle your child….Tickle them instead

If we’re being honest, I think we would all say there are times when you totally get why some animals eat their young.

Kids can drive you so crazy that you feel like you are going to explode. You know what I do then?

I tickle the hell out of those little suckers!  It works, try it and I’ll tell you why:

  1. You are literally attacking them (although in a way Child Protective Services would not frown upon), so it releases all your pent-up frustrations.
  2. And they giggle.  Thus utilizing a child’s number one defense mechanism – cuteness (unless the kid is ugly, I guess.  I thank God every day that mine aren’t!)
  3. The more they giggle, the more you tickle, upping both your frustration release and their cuteness.
  4. Finally, at the end, you’re too tired to be mad anymore.
