How to Lose All Credibility With Your Child

Go in to comfort them during a storm.

Listen to their concerns about the power going out.

Respond reassuringly with, "No, Ethan, the power is not going to go out. I promise."

Make sure you add the "I promise;" that's the really important part.

Also, time it so that just at that very second - right as that last syllable leaves your mouth.....?

...the power goes out.

I'm pretty sure he will never trust anything I say ever again.
