Patricia Arquette and Stephen
Colbert know that parents have
to manipulate their children into
doing the right things
by Nathan'ette Burdine: March 17, 2019

Patricia Arquette and Stephen Colbert are like all parents who know that often a parent just has to manipulate his/her child into doing the right thing.

    "Do you find that as a parent, to be a good parent that you have
     to manipulate your child a little bit?" Colbert asked Arquette. "I
     mean for good reasons not bad reasons. To get them to do the
     right thing, you have to make them think it’s their idea."

    "To get them to eat vegetables, I had to pretend they were
     rabbits. If you see a little rabbit around here, don’t let them eat
     my carrot…They’ll climb under the table and eat the carrot,"
     Arquette said to Colbert.

Arquette says the whole rabbit/carrot trick stopped working after the children turned the big 4. Unlike those one, two, and three-year olds, those four year olds are able to put one and one together to get two.

So when mama tells a four year old that a rabbit is hopping around, eating her carrots, the four year old begins looking for the rabbit. And when he doesn’t find the rabbit, the four year starts thinking, “Mama trying to use an imaginary rabbit to get me to eat those nasty carrots.”

The conversation about getting the little ones to eat their peas and carrots began after Arquette told Colbert about her new movie The Act.

The movie is based on a true story about Patricia Clarkson who, at the age of 48, was murdered by her daughter in 2015.

The character that Patricia Arquette plays is name Dee Dee Blanchard.

Like Clarkson, Blanchard has Munchausen by proxy Syndrome (MSbP). MSbp is an illness that causes individuals to fake a sickness in order to get attention.

In The Act , Patricia Arquette’s character convinces her daughter Gypsy Rose, played by Joey King, that she is sick so that she (Dee Dee Blanchard) may use her daughter in order to get the attention she (Dee Dee Blanchard) desires.

The Act
is a limited series currently showing on Hulu.
