Bribing Your Kids

The hubby sent me this link in an email:

Why Bribing Your Child Doesn’t Work

My opiion after reading and reflecting was, it definitely seems that the well thought-out rewards and praise seem to work best.  I’m even surprised by the kiddo when he seems to want to do things like math and reading just to spend time with us and for the praise he receives rather than when offer him a bribe.   
 
Like when some family members were here I offered the kiddo a cookie to read a book for your them and that backfired in a big way.    Bribes don’t work.    

How do you reward and/or bribe your kids?   What’s been successful and what hasn’t?

Until next time,
