Title: The "Yes" Game--New Age Parenting
Post by: freakyfemme on March 22, 2007, 10:11:41 PM
Hey all,

We all know, or have at least heard stories, of parents who believe that saying "no" is damaging to their child's precious self-esteem, so when they *have* to say no, they find a way to phrase it as "yes."  So, that's what this game is all about.  One person acts as the "child," and makes a request that a parent would more than likely say no to (For example, "Can I have a cookie?"), and the next person will then respond as the parent, with a "yes" answer that's really "no."  (For example, "Yes, after dinner.")  The object is to come up with the most outlandish requests ever, and the craziest, funniest responses as well.  I'll start:

Can I ride my Big Wheel on the roof?

(My gut instinct was to reply "Yes, when pigs fly!")  ;)

This day and age, definitely.  There's nothing "spiritual" about letting your kids act like horrible brats, lol.

Edited to add:  Back to the game......Yes, you can dangle the cat over a boiling vat of Jell-o, as long as you don't mind being scratched half to death.

Purple Jesus was very popular when I was in college due to our close proximity to coastal South Carolina where it is the drunken college student beverage of choice. There are several recipes, but I always liked grape KoolAid.

Back in the early 60's, it was close enough to the Korean war for kids to have hand grenades brought home by their uncles.  The kids said they were disarmed, but how were we to know?

It was never the dad's, it was always the uncle's.

I always envisioned these bachelor uncles showing off to their nephews, by arming them to the teeth.

Absolutely!!!  You can hang-glide your little heart out--off the front porch.  Hey, it's technically *part* of the house, right?

Can I spend all my waking hours on E-hell, to the exclusion of my schoolwork, friends, and keeping my room reasonably neat and tidy?  (oh, wait, I already do that. ;) )

Sure, snookums! We'll throw them out right now! But we won't be able to get to the mall until next week, so you'll have to wear that dorky sweater Grandma sent you, the one with Elmo on it. ALL day. EVERY day. Oh, you say you can wait? Oh, good!

Can I use your very expensive china for target practice?

Absolutely!!!  You inherited *my* hand-eye co-ordination, so I know there isn't a chance in Hades of you actually hitting anything.

Can I start making a regular habit of drinking a breakfast energy drink, a before-clarinet-lesson energy drink, a before-choir energy drink, and then an evening energy drink to get me through orchestra/homework/studying/whatever?  (My parents didn't actually say yes to THAT in so many words, but what they don't know can't hurt them, lol. ;))

On a side-note: When I first started college, I had a lot of trouble deciding what I wanted to major in. That first year, I was frustrated when at a family reunion several family members kept bringing up the subject and offering their advice and opinions. By the end of the day I was telling people (In a very saucy tone) that I was majoring in underwater candle lighting! LOL!

And make sure to feed your cute little critters only the best organic free-range steak. Which you are to rear and slaughter.

Can I take out the fluorescent tube from the kitchen overhead light to use as a light-sabre*?

*Siblings & I actually did this once with the replacement tube when parents went out shopping.

Mommy, can my four year old brother and I watch all those movies we're not supposed to, like Death Wish, and Halloween?  (Yes, my brother and I did accidentally watch Death Wish when he was four and I was six - until my mom's friend came and caught us, freaked out, and took the movie out of the VCR).

Of course you can, sweetie! Just don't forget to watch that stash of porn your father has hidden in the benroom closet.

Mom, this guy I met online says I would make a great adult film star, so can I quit school and go live with him?

Sure, Sweetie! But don't you think it was much more adorable when you did it on that train we took last month? Even if we did have to get off two stops early, take two taxis, and rent a car that costs more than I had in the checking account at the time. We still had fun, right?

You can start the team, and I'll help you put the engines on the brooms (if they're not Firebolts), but you have to prepare the Quaffle, Bludgers, and Snitch yourself.

Can I cast a spell that permanently turns my teacher mute?

Go for it!!!  Then maybe she'll stop calling here all the time and trying to convince me that you're a "discipline problem," whatever that means.  Hey, it's not your fault the class hamster wanted to see the world, all you did was help him realize his dreams.

I'm five years old.  Since I just learned to read, will you please help me set up a MySpace profile?

Sure, but first you have to teach the dog to read, so he can read all of Alli's "healthy weight loss tips."  We wouldn't want Fido to start a diet plan without being informed of ALLLLL the possible side effects, including anal leakage.  Oh, and one more thing, you're now in charge of purchasing Depends for the dog, and changing them when the, ahh, side effects take effect.

I know you want me to help you paint the living room on Saturday, but Bryttknee wants me to go to a sleepover at her house.  Can we paint the living room "Mr. Bean style," and take all the pictures off the walls, cover everything we don't want painted in newspaper, put the paint can in the middle of the room, throw in a lit firecracker, and run?  >:D

Mommy, can I play "Bicycle Polo*" in the street with my friends?

*"Bicycle Polo" is an ACTUAL game that my dad and his brothers invented when they were kids.  They used hockey sticks, baseball bats, golf clubs, and good old fashioned FALLEN BRANCHES as polo clubs, and played with whatever kind of ball they had.  This meant they had to steer with one hand, and dribble the ball with the other, while moving......and yes, according to my dad, it was every BIT as dangerous as it sounds.  >:D

Yes I know it's butt-ugly, but it'd make her happy. This may be her last Christmas you know....

Oh yes, Snookums! Here is a scooper to pick up after him...oh you might need two, since a dog would have to be pretty big to carry all those books and homework. Oh and here's a brush to groom him, don't forget his flea collar, and a $200 estimate from the vet for his shots, and the $100 estimate from the trainers so he will be well-behaved...

Of course you can, darling!  But you will be fired for not reporting to work on time and playing Guitar Hero all day is no excuse.  And since you'll be fired for cause, you can't collect on unemployment, and since you won't be able to pay me the rent you owe me, I'll have to evict you.

Ofcourse darling...only if Mommy Dearest goes with you. Oh and Grandma and Auntie Rose want to go as well...we know how much you LOVE Tom Jones, so we will be taking in his show after hitting the slots. Of course the only way I can pay for this trip is to use your college/wedding fund.

Momma...mommy....Mother Dear....can I Pleeeeeeeeeeeeaaaaaaaaaaaassssssssseeeeeeeee have nothing but chocolate for dinner?

Of course my dear!  We'll fix up a cute little place for you right next to the doghouse!  It'll be lovely.  It might get a little cold during winter with just a quilt to sleep on, but I'm sure you'll persevere!!

Sure dahling....but we will have to use the vacation fund we've been saving since you were born. You wanted to go to Disney World, remember? I guess Mickey will eat his breakfast alone now...

Mother....please make this vegan dish that no one has ever heard of for Thanksgiving instead of the traditional turkey you murdering meat-eaters love so much....if you don't it means you don't LOVE me!

Why of course, darling-now go in the other room and eat it.  We murdering meat-eaters are still going to eat our murdered turkey.  You just don't have to be present when we do.

Mama, Papa, buy me a new car.

Why certainly, darling, but only if you are auditioning to be a clown.  Otherwise, no.

Maaaaaaaammmmmaaaaaaaaaa, can I force everyone in the world to agree with me 100% of the time?

Oh my sweetie, we should have gotten you one at age 6--please forgive me for those months you missed!!
I will get you the upgraded internet connected everything special phone to make up for it.  And I will be sure to buy an extra one because I know you will lose at least one phone!!

Mommy--I know you are cooking dinner for 16 guests, but I really need to use my easy bake oven right in the middle of the kitchen.  You will let me be underfoot for an hour or so and then clean up my mess for me, right?

Of course you can dear, and while you're at it, why don't you cook the planned dessert in it?

Can you please give me some $$ so can go out and buy the entire series DVD's of all my favorite TV shows?

Here you go-but you have to pay for a TV and DVD player out of your own funds-ours won't be available to you.

Why of course, my love, as long as you get one on every other place on your body.

Mommie dearest, I require a job that pays $2 million base salary, an annual bonus of 50% of profits, full health and life insurance coverage, a company limo, a company airplane, the corner office on the top floor, three personal assistants, a designer wardrobe, memberships at every health club and country club in the nation, and has absolutely no responsibilities.  Right this minute.

Absolutely--one My Little Pony set coming RIGHT up.  Oh, and your Strawberry Shortcake dolls will be happy to moonlight as servants, when they're not busy baking pies and whatnot.

I'm four years old.  Can I please have a copy of Grand Theft Auto?

Yes darling, but make sure all of the ornaments and tinsel are still on it when you have your dance with it.

Can I learn to crow like a rooster and practice doing so outside at the break of dawn?

Sure, but we'll have to use our vacation money that we had saved up and we were planning on surprising you with a trip to Disney World.

Sure! But we'll have to get you an extra-warm wetsuit and scuba gear first. And would you mind ice-fishing while you're at it? Your brother ate the last of the seafood.

Can I stick my head out the car window and scream at passersby?

Sure you can. Don't be deterred by those three giant doggies you see in their garden. Their growling and bared teeth only mean they want a hug.

Moooommmmy, can I have a pet lion????? Pleaaaaase?? I will cuddle and huggle and squeeze and feed him and he will be mine!!!

Sure honey, here's a hammer to help.  Just make sure that you run very fast AWAY from our house and KEEP GOING until you reach the precinct house.  When you get there yo can tell all those nice cops what you did.

Of course you can, sweetie, you just have to shoot 1000 targets in the '10' circle down at the range, first.


Mummy... I know I'm allergic, but can I have peanut butter sandwiches for lunch like all the other kids?
Title: Re: The "Yes" Game--New Age Parenting
Post by: whatsanenigma on March 29, 2010, 04:39:23 PM
Yes, but you have to plant the peanuts first and harvest them and make them into peanut butter yourself. And then you have to bake the bread from scratch and slice it. None of that store-bought stuff is good enough for you, my most special snowflake!

Mommy, I heard about this new thing called "keying a car". Can I try it out on Daddy's BMW?

Oh sweetums. That sounds fun, but Daddy's car just isn't a fine enough canvas for MY little artist... run across the street and try it on the nice neighbor lady's cherry '55 corvette instead, okies?

Daddy, can I go get pregnant so i'll fit in with all my firends in junior high? (this is seriously why my 14 y.o. niece is gonna be a mom in another two months... *gag)

Oh, you don't have to go through all that trouble! If you're having trouble fitting in, we'll just transfer you to that nice school for girls who are going to become nuns.

Of course not, dear-they'll just sue us and take everything you've saved up, and you'll have to sell your Xbox, iPad, and computer to pay attorney's fees.

Okay, I'm calling shenanigans on the nap since no kid in the world would ask for that one!   :D

Of course you can, precious angelkins.  Just as soon as Mommy redecorates your room so probably not today.  Which is good since it's so late and you KNOW you need your sleep at night!
