There are times when kids have certain demands and you realize that it's an opportunity for you as a parent to have your demands met too in what's called "negotiation." The joke below shows one parent's professional level negotiation skills at work!
He asked his father, who was a minister if they could discuss his use of the family car. His father considered this inevitability and decided to negotiate:
"I'll make a deal with you. You bring your grades up; study your Bible a little, and get your hair cut, then we will talk about it."
A month later, the boy came back and again asked his father if they could discuss his use of the family car.

His father said, "Son, I'm really proud of you. You have brought your grades up; you've studied your Bible diligently, but you didn't get hair cut!"
The young man waited a moment and replied,
"You know Dad, I've been thinking about that. The Bible says Samson had long hair. Moses had long hair. Noah had long hair, and even Jesus had long hair."

His father replied, without skipping a beat,
"Yes, son, and they walked everywhere they went!"
When will youngsters learn that their elders know best and have an answer for everything! Although in the following story, the adults are not as mindful as they should be about their child driving.
Rapper Young Thug finally reacted to criticism after a video of one of his young daughters driving a car went viral.
The Shade Room recently posted a video showing one of Young Thug’s daughters driving a car on a public road. The girl is believed to be under the age of 10.
The footage above clearly shows the child sitting in the driver's seat without a seat belt on and an adult hand appearing briefly to adjust the steering wheel.
With over two million views clocked on the recording, fans had a lot to say about the negligent behavior of the unidentified adult in the car with the girl, believed to be the child's mother.
