Does it drive you nuts when...

You ask your kids "who did this?" and you get "it wasn't me" or "not me"? I HATE it when mine do this. I didn't ask who DIDN'T do it, I asked who DID, dammit!

  • Deep breath....It will be okay. Whatever they did they didn't kill anyone. I know that isn't the question that you asked. We would be punished until the culprit confessed and the person that was punished and shouldn't have been got to dole out double what was given to them. Good luck Momma.

  • ha thats funny i was just talking about this with a friend. the most pointless thing to ask a child is "who did this?" or "did you do this?" lol they never will admit it and say "oh i did" its frustrating huh

  • I have an only child who used to swear he "didn't do it" ! He even made up a bad imaginary friend who did everything ds was in trouble for.

  • I remember those days and sometimes now I still get it when their adults!! But when you ask your youngins that questions and they respond to it like....Not me! Then just say...Well then I guess the Not Me Ghost was here again! It's always the Not Me Ghost!!

  • Mine say that everytime I ask them, I give them a warning to tell me the truth and if no one fesses up they all get punished.
