Moms: Why Toddlers Ultimately Win All Arguments...

#9 They scream louder than you.

#8 You arenít allowed to stoop to their tactics, like taking off your clothes and banging on walls.

#7 Itís impossible to reason with someone whoís basically all tears and mucus.

#6 If youíve taught them how to call 911, they have a distinct advantage.

#5 Most people side with cute, adorable moppets over flustered women in sweats.

#4 You use reason and logic; they use gut and throwing remote controls.

#3 Their father.

#2 Itís either let them win or make a serious scene in the middle of a Target.

#1 Toddlers donít argue; they beat you into submission.

I know it is a joke....


But, the only reason a toddler would win is that the parent is not being a parent....

Our kids did not win... they learned quickly that throwing a tantrum cost them more than they wanted to get in the first place... but, I was very surprised to see how quickly they could swing from emotion to emotion....

Because the parents are wusses. For the most part they never had any discipline, and they operate under the impression that one needs to negotiate with those under the age of reason.
