I recently discovered the most effective method of ensuring your teenage kids always offer you a cup of tea, rather than making their own and scurrying upstairs to their room.
It’s a trick I gleaned recently at my book club.
When you catch said teenager with their solo cup, ask them:
“Is that a Cup of Selfish?”
It worked a treat with my one, who looked extremely guilty (might be in part due to a Catholic primary education) and every since, now goes around the whole house offering cups of tea to all!
