Bribes!

Ok, I totally bribed Jackson to go to school this morning. I told him if he didn’t shed a tear, have his teacher call me to pick him up because his stomach hurt and he stayed on purple – I would take him to Starbucks after school. He lit up and walked right out the door. Starbucks is a huge treat for him and he asks me almost daily for a caramel apple spice.
I was thinking – what do YOU bribe your kids to do and with what? What is the golden token you can use to get your kids to do what you need them too??

  1. O my goodness…did you see my Facebook post this morning? I used Chick Fil A to bride my kids just this morning. When this post popped into my email box, I was almost scared to open it because I thought you were going to say something like “Can you BELIEVE those parents that bride their kids to do things…especially with food?!?!?” I was freaking out! Then I opened this and laughed out loud!!! You know, sometimes you just have to do what works. My kids take FOREVER on school mornings, no matter how much I prepare the night before. This morning, I just wans’t in the mood to keep prodding them along, so I used a bride. I’ll tell you what – they were waiting for me!!! Ya I know!!! Teeth brushed, chores done, lunches packed, backpacks ready, car started and waiting at the front door for me. I LOVE IT!!!!
