It would depend on the context and situation.

Can you provide an example for this statement:

If I tell a kid he needs to go to his room and he refuses, he will be very sorry he refused. And he will go to his room.

It would depend on what the issue was and why he was refusing to go to his room. For instance, if he were arguing with me about his use of the computer because I told him his time was up and he got mouthy about how long he'd been on the computer, and I told him to go to his room and he refused, I might remove all computer privileges for a week, and still make him go to his room. If he were refusing to go to his room and I'd told him to go there and bring me all his laundry and he simply said, "I know I don't have any laundry" but I know he did, he'd end up bringing me all the laundry from every spot in the house, and putting away the clean laundry as well. Stuff like that.

Well, they still won't believe it. My kids assure me, without any evidence whatsoever, that I am the only parent in the world who cares about things like what they look like when they leave the house, or whether they really fulfill the terms of their assignments, or any number of things. Evidently I am an anal compulsive with nothing better to do that micromanage my children's lives. And no amount of evidence that other parents do things essentially the same way will persuade either of them otherwise.
