Call it whatever you wish, bribery, disciplining or parenting. Whatever suits your fancy, but it works wonders for me.
Oh yes, I am taking credit for this one…..
I have a “deal” with the 3 younger ones….
If their room is “mommy” cleaned before supper, they each get a Popsicle to enjoy on the front porch after supper.
However, there are few stipulations…
* I will remind them only once about 30 minutes before serving time* There will be no fighting, yelling, choking, spitting, or whining during clean up* Everyone must do their share* The oldest sibling will inspect their bedroom before supper begins (He’s the neatest of the bunch) and just sometimes I don’t have to be the mean one around here
Can I hear an AMEN or two!
What bribery compromise works for you and your children?
