    I don’t particularly like this one. Not sure why?

    To me, it seems to say that your questionable actions/tactics may be excused if you achieve your desired result – exactly the message you try to avoid sending as a parent…

    Pros:
    It’s concise, oft-repeated and catchy.

    Cons:
    Underlying message not exactly great.
