Today, my 5 year old daughter came back from a playdate at her new friend's house. Apparently, while she was there, her friend taught her a new way to get anything she wanted. That would be holding her breath until she passes out. FML

How does that get her anything she wants?

If she wants to hold her breath until she passes out, let her. When she goes unconscious, pick her up and put her in a dark room with the door shut and the lights off. She'll start screaming when she wakes up, so you can let her out.

Or... draw a funny moustache on her with a sharpie when she's unconscious. Or shave her head.

But she won't try the "holding her breath" thing again.
