“Please eat some more,” my wife insists.
“I don’t feel like eating anymore.”
Any parents would understand how difficult it is to convince their children to eat, especially while they’re sick.
“Baby, please finish this,” I try my share of parental persuasion. “If you do that, you can watch as many The Frozen videos on Youtube as you want.”
“Are you sure, Apa?”
“Yes, very much, but_," I hate putting conditions. “If you don’t eat everything on your plate, I’ll delete all The Frozen videos from Youtube.”
The mere thought of all her favorite videos disappearing from the cyber-sphere disturbs my daughter quite a bit.
My daughter keeps her promise, but it will not be long before she finds that her father has made a fool of himself for her benefit.
