As a child I instigated this approach with my parents... I'm not sure where it came from, but if felt much more natural to me than lying or throwing a temper tantrum. I work really hard to have open communication with my son this way.

He still needs to work on being a 'good loser' though. :D

That was a hard thing for me to learn, too. I had to learn that admitting uncertainty, from the start, made it much easier to give way to reason, later. I had to accept that I was responsible for setting myself up to be embarrassed when I took too strong a stance at first. It was a powerful enough lesson that, decades later, I still remember where I was when I figured it out.
