Especially if the hoop's on fire...

Being willing to jump through hoops, or even to invent imaginative hoops to jump through, will make you a better parent. That is to say, you'll get a lot more cooperation when you engage your child on her terms, and create a fun and goofy narrative to pull her through the things you need to do. I suck at it, but I'm married to an excellent practitioner of the art.
