blake asked me this morning what i was going to give him if he got all A's on his report card. i think i laughed and then said something like "i dunno. a HUG. what the heck do you mean?" and then he informed me that his friends at school get $50 bucks if they get straight a's.
i definitely laughed at that. and then i told him that i was not going to pay him to get good grades. i informed my little wanter face that he should get good grades all on his own. that it is his JOB to work hard and get the best grades he can. and that i'm not going to reward that with money.
i did tell him that if he brought home all a's, we'd go out to dinner, to wherever he wanted and maybe we'd get ice cream. i'm a big spender.
i believe in rewarding your kid for certain things. but paying them for stuff they should do? i mean, shouldn't they try to get a's in school? that's like me giving him money for going to bed at night. thanks for going to sleep blake, here's 5 bucks.
do you pay your kids for good grades? if not, what DO you bribe them to do?
