Kevin shared the example of how he and his brother used to prank each other as children. They would take all the spices from their parent’s spice rack and pour them into a cup of milk and dare each other to drink it.

Playing jokes can be used as a tool to create a sense of closeness with family. Not only is it a way to show love. It can also help to reduce stress and provide an outlet for everyone to laugh and have a good time. When done correctly, pranks can be a great way to create a sense of closeness with family.

It can also be used to teach important values and lessons. It is important to set limits and boundaries when pranking to ensure that it is done in a safe and responsible manner. This can be a great way to teach your family members the importance of respect, trust, and communication.
