There's a way to say "I can't do that because of these reasons" which is very differently received than "I won't do it! I won't! I won't! I won't!" while you're stomping your feet and pouting.
That's not the play I'm talking about. That's just sort-of obvious communication.
I'm talking about proper switching of the roles for a bit.
