    The child says: sure I'll do my chores, but if you don't give me the ice creme first, I'll burn the house down.

    Then the Parent says: Ok, if you promise not to burn the house down for 6 weeks, we'll talk for 6 weeks about what else you might want other than ice creme.

    Do you think the child won't threaten to burn the house down again?  Would that be a responsible way to raise a child?
