I usually try to make him think it was his idea by suggesting an alternate method to get the same result. :)

I try to turn things into games, a challenge. This makes it fun. I have also tried reward/sticker charts for when I need to help my child change a behavior.

I give them two choices (one of which is the choice I want him to pick, the other one is usually something not so awesome lol) and say "you can either ---- or ----" and those are the only two things he can p...ick.
I'm also not above bribery! LOL

We have a bank DD made at school and she gets change for making good choices and doing good deeds. If she doesn't want to do what we have asked her to do, we remind her that she won't get any change for her bank and that usually gets her motivated.

Insist louder! If I think it's just a misunderstanding, then I do try to explain why I want them to do something.

Generally, I try to change the wording and make the situation into something she will somehow enjoy or think is her idea!

They will lose one of their 'privileges,' such as dessert or watching a tv show, if they don't do whatever it is. It usually works!

I use reverse pshychology. If I tell my son in a joking tone to be sure not to eat his vegetables...especially the big ones - he eats them right up!
