So when you ask your child to do something and he response later, etc you can get permission to nag. You can say "great". that will work but how about would you mind it is gets close to 6, would you mind if I will remind you. Now, your teen will think it is very strange that you are asking permission in this way but they will say " Yeah, sure" not knowing exactly what they are agreeing to so you then had permission to go back a little before 6 and to say " Oh sorry sweetie, here is the reminder" Can you get that done?
