19 – Smoke & Mirrors – Christmas Edition

As much fun as the Christmas season can be, it is also loaded with trickery and fibs. Why not use those tricks and fibs to gain some compliance with our kids? Troy and Seamus share some of the things we do that keep our kids in line during the holidays. But not all of them are just to get them to behave. Some are for the spirit of the time of year, to step up the fun a little.

Fun story about this episode: We recorded it about a year ago, so we’ve had it on standby for a while. Seamus handles the website and when he tried to upload the first episode, he accidentally put this one up first.  So if anyone was very quick to listen, this episode was up for about three hours back in March.

Seamus here with a bonus smoke and mirrors trick: We recently caught one of our kids in a lie. Without getting into the details, she really leaned into it. She was super committed to the lie. So Mary reminded her about the “Santa Cam” and asked what Santa would say if we were to call him. She did NOT want us to call Santa and finally came out with the real story.
