"You never____" seems to be the new theme at our house. Last night DH told the kids their muffins were on the counter, don't eat T"s in the fridge because they are dairy free. It was like it opened a flood gate. "You never buy us snacks" uhhh untrue on about ten different levels, one being dad just said "yours are on the counter." Then the next kid chimed in "you never buy my juice", "how come we never have tacos anymore", "you never take us to the movies". The kids are almost 7 and 8, and 15 and 16 and they were all looking around at each other agreeing. Dh were talking about it later kinda reevaluating and realized its the new theme and could name another dozen things they claim we never do. How do you respond when your kids say this about whatever. Do you point out "you went to see "Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs" on the 15th?" Do you argue with them? Is there a way to curb this behavior? I understand the younger two doing it but the older two?? And I mean its OFTEN and about all different things. Or is it just normal and let them think they are "oh so mistreated"
