parenting by annoyance.

"Hey, monkey. How was your weekend?"
"What'd you do?"
"Did you go for a hike?"
"Did you play basketball?"
"Did you go water-skiing?"
"No. You know I don't play basketball."
"You're not giving me any information, so I'm going to ask you about every possible thing you could have done this weekend until I find out."
"Oh, okay, fine. I did a bunch of stuff without screens. We went for a couple walks, and we played some non-video games. I read a bunch of books. There, are you satisfied now?"
