Dad the Negotiator


Who knew that being a parent would make me an expert in negotiation.

“Put the remote down and no one gets hurt!”

“Please sir! Put the remote down!”

“I swear we will put on trains just put the remote down!”

“It doesn’t have to come to this! If you put the remote down everything will work out!”

Maybe you won’t see me as a negotiator anytime soon for your local police department.
