     •  Con your kid into eating by playing on his possessiveness.
     •  Con your kid into bathing by “swimming” in the tub.
     •  Con your kid into talking quietly by whispering back.
     •  Con your kid into returning your iDevice—by any means possible!
 
And dozens more tricks of the parenting trade!
