Kids Can Use Fridge To Brainwash Parents

TORONTO (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – The refrigerator door can be used as a parental brainwashing device.

Allan Peterkin is the author of Chill: Discover The Cool (And Creative) Side Of Your Fridge (Kids Can Press), a children’s book filled with fridge facts, including creative ways kids can use the fridge to their advantage.

According to Peterkin, any kid can score a puppy or new toy if they cleverly place subliminal hints on the door of their fridge.

For instance, if they want a new dog, placing pictures of cute puppies, breeder ads, and magnetic captions like “pets teach responsibility” could sway parents.

Peterkin says this cool tactic worked for him as a child and he was able to convince his parents to buy him a beagle.

Since the average person visits the fridge 11 times a day, Peterkin says whatever hangs on it, including art, can’t be missed.

He says, “The fridge is a family’s center of the universe. Everything on it gives you an idea of what they’re like.”

Chill hits shelves this March.
