Today, my 3-year-old daughter asked me to carry her from the car to the house. I asked her for 3 kisses and a hug in return. She said she'd rather walk instead. FML

In her defence, 3 kisses and a hug sounds like too much work..

Damn inflation. I remember being able to ride on my dad's shoulders for hours for 1 hug.

More work than walking?

Also in her defense that everybody gets embarrassed if they have to kiss their mothers in public.

She's three years old though, I don't think it'd really matter

It's unfortunate she's already embarrassed by her parents. It only gets worse from there.

Your means of haggling are inferior! :) Sounds like she knows what makes it worth the while.

Awh that's so cute! At least she won't be kissing no boys in the future, OP

What makes you think this has anything to do with her kissing boys..?

Depends how far they'll carry her.

Ouch.. It's okay, OP. Sometimes kids just like to act out. I was the same way, but I still love my parents dearly.

#6 Refusing to kiss and hug someone isn't acting out. It's not something a kid 'should' do or be pressured to do, like kissing their grandparents goodbye. Not if you want to raise a kid that knows what giving consent really means.

Next time, you need to take a different negotiation approach.

She only has so many kisses to give. Geez. That's what happens when you price gouge.

Smart girl - she doesn't negotiate with terrorists.

3 kisses? I'll do 1 kiss, and the hug is pushing my limits.
