In about the year 1993 when Nirvana taught teenagers to wear those flannel hoods everywhere, kids stopped listening to their parents. And experts said it was because generation X didn't feel "seen" so they carved inappropriate words on their school desks and drove too fast in parking lots.

Well, the good news for parents in Utah now is some shyster on Instagram is going to learn your dumb butt how to parent properly.

His name is Jeremy Leeminer and he talks about a technique he learned from FBI negotiator Chris Voss.

This idea is to ask your teen "how-to" questions.

So instead of saying "you have to clean your room before you go to your friends house!"

You say: "How are you going to go to your friends house if you don't clean your room."

Apparently that gets your stoner teen to approach the room cleaning in a different way.

The book he is quoting is called Never Split the Difference. Here's a synopsis from Google Books:

"Life is a series of negotiations you should be prepared for: buying a car, negotiating a salary, buying a home, renegotiating rent, deliberating with your partner. Taking emotional intelligence and intuition to the next level, Never Split the Difference gives you the competitive edge in any discussion."

What do you think about this? Would your teenager fall for this Jedi mind trick or would they simply poor a Frosty over your head and tell you to shove it? All teenagers are different.

Let me know in the comments why this would or wouldn't work with a real teenager.
