Honestly, it sounds like they have like ten people out there occasionally going "woo!"
Edit: occasionally going "woo."
I think the article's title makes it sound a little bit more adversarial than it needs to be, though. I think I like the authors' title better: "The Game Theorist's Guide to Parenting: How the Science of Strategic Thinking Can Help You Deal with the Toughest Negotiators You Know--Your Kids."
I remember when Office cost an arm and a leg and after a couple years a new version would come out and I'd be stuck with the old version until I could afford a new arm and leg to give Microsoft.
It makes it sound sort of like when Jeb Bush had ask his audience to "please clap." I would have thought they'd wanted to make the applause sound, well, like an applause and not a humdrum of polite claps and woos. Everyone sounds like they are super far away, like a mute on a trumpet.
Let me know if you have any ideas about what to write about next. I've been thinking about tying this article into one about the use of force in negotiations, such as competitive versus problem-solving styles of negotiation.

I view conflict as a form of decision-making. It is an opportunity that can be incredibly beneficial, but also incredibly detrimental. My goal is to help others through their conflicts to maximize the good and minimize the bad. My approach integrates both my experience and my education.
I have done consulting in Chicago, IL, Milwaukee, WI, and New Delhi, India. I have a Master in Dispute Resolution from Marquette University (May 2015; professional project focused on conflict decision-making), Master of Business Administration from the University of Illinois at Chicago (May 2011; concentrations in Management and Entrepreneurship), and a Bachelor of Arts in Liberal Arts and Sciences from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (May 2006; majors in Political Science, distinction, and Classical Civilization).
