Cole-I don’t want to do the lesson.

Me-Well, it’s your turn. It will be fun.

Cole-The lesson is never the fun part.

Me-You don’t like to learn about Jesus? (Yes, meant to ignite a little guilt and feeling of obligation. This question would have worked like a charm with my 6-year-old daughter. She loves to comply and please. Cole on the other hand, answered like this–)

Cole-MOM, I am not doing the lesson!
