Bribery Parenting


I am a firm believer in bribery parenting. If I can print off a chart and fill it with stickers to get Jack to do something, I am all for it! This week alone Jack has earned a trip to El Rancherito for jumping off of the diving board at swim lessons (from Bamp) and a Super Soaker squirt gun from his Mom and Dad for filling his stay dry all night chart with stickers. Not a normal week mind you, but a good one for Jack. I can only imagine what I will have to do to get him to go to pre-school.
What do you think??
Do you bribe your kids? Does it really work or am I creating a monster?

If bribery works for me, then I'm going with it! We might own a whole tractor supply company by the time preschools out LOL

Bribing is just teaching him that he has to work for his pay, just like all of us. Great lesson, I say!

Whatever works! Remember who this is coming from though. We believe in swirlies at our house...and you saw how well that worked!

I bribe for certain things, completely dependent on each situation.
