Last Mouthfuls: A Negotiation

“But I’m not hungry…”

“You’ve hardly eaten any of that dinner”.

“But I don’t like peas”.

“You did yesterday. Remember, there is no dessert unless you finish”.

“But I’m not hungry FOR dinner.”

“But you’re hungry for dessert?”

“I will be later, when we have dessert.”

“All right – how old are you?”

“7.”

“Right – eat 7 more mouthfuls and then you can leave the table, and have dessert.”

“Ok.”
