So the question is...

... should I tell Ewan the truth or use it to get him to obey me...? - 

Shopping for socks at Target, standing in front of a huge wall full of them.  Ewan pulls one of the empty metal hanging rods off and says, "Uh-oh, Mommy, this came off."  Having my hands full with all three boys and not being able to go hang it back up, I said, "Well, um, just lay it nicely on the floor under the shelf."  Panic washed over his face as he frantically tried to get it back up and he said, "No, Mommy!  If I leave it there, someone will find it and they will call the police and the police will come looking for who did it and then they will get me!"

Oh, tempting...I would seriously consider it. BUT since I'm not good at the parenting stuff, I'll defer to the others and see what they say...

Oooo...think of the power you can wield with that kind of thing! LOL!
I'm sure he'll figure it out himself one of these days.

That is so funny. But I have to admit that I often feel a slight rush of panic if I ever do something like that at the store...

Totally use it as a way for him to obey you! ;)
