It's easier to ask for forgiveness


JACK (entering the kitchen while wiping his mouth and holding an empty half-a-plastic-egg): Mom, did you say I could eat the M&M's out of this?

ME: No, I said you could only eat the ones you took OUT of the egg, not the rest.

JACK: Oh. Sorry.

oh, this is classic! that way, he doesn't have to feel guilty, because he sort of confessed to what he did wrong, even if he feigned ignorance. I definitely did that as a kid. Especially when chocolate was involved.
