Before you read this article make sure your kid isn’t hiding behind you watching over your shoulder. What I’m about to tell you is a SECRET for parents only. With this one trick you will be able to make your kids WANT to eat healthier food. Are they gone? Ok here it is…
Kids are naturally rebellious and will do the opposite of what you want them to do. So in order to get them to do something you want them to do you have to make them think they are actually disobeying you! Parenting is hard.
A new research study found out if you tell kids that fast food chains are trying to manipulate them into becoming addicted to their junk food so that they can get their money they will REBEL faster than Billy Idol. Let’s be honest, it’s not like you would be lying to them.
Researchers gave a group of kids information about healthy foods and nutrition to show them how to be eat better. Nothing changed in their eating habits. But when they told the kids about how the junk food industry is just out to get their money they started to avoid those items. It’s their way of “stickin it to the man!” basically. Researchers say it’s due to the fact that kids have a powerful instinct to rebel against the companies for trying to exploit people.
Parenting has just been hacked.
