Coffee made, lunch packed, light is switched on and the words "it's time for school" are softly spoken, only to be met wth contempt and dread and a full retreat under the covers.
Dad: "Hey sweety, time to get up for school."
Daughter: "I am SO not going to get up!"
*pulls covers over head and shrinks back into warm cocoon*
Dad: "The word for today is coercion."
Chloe: "It's not that I don't want to go to school, I just don't want to go yet."
*goes back to something else*
Chloe: "Will you help me get dressed?"
Dad: "Of course I will."
Chloe: "NOT YET!"
*slams covers back over head*
