Mom was ready to "lose it" with her 7 year old son. He wasn't getting dressed for school and kept ignoring her. She was about to "get the spoon" (a threat that had worked in the past). Instead, mom took a deep breath, counted to 10 and then gave him a choice, "You can either get dressed or go to school in your Pajama's", and she left the room. A few minutes later he came out all dressed and ready for school. Way to avoid a battle mom!!
