Kids these days.

Child: By setting a time limit on this, you’re denying me the opportunity to claim this space and to truly own it.

Me: You don’t own it. It’s my house. Now go clean your room.

Child: You know, I’m not really learning anything about personal responsibility if I clean my room just because you told me to.

Me: Well, maybe this isn’t a learning experience; maybe this is just you cleaning your room.

Child: You would miss out on a chance to teach? I am the future, you know.
