Having kids is hard. I don't personally have any, but I was a kid once, so I can only imagine what my parents went through. Children have their own agenda, which includes eating candy for dinner and complaining if asked to help. As a parent, getting angry at your children probably isn't the most effective way to mould them into good human beings. But there's this thing called reverse psychology, and it's amazing. After reading the following posts from AskReddit, I realized that my own parents duped me with reverse psychology. Sneaky... and clever. Well done, parents.
