It’s not bribery – it’s behavior support!

I recently read a blog post of a young mother with a darling 2 year old daughter.  Mom was relating how she had succumbed to the “bribing” style of parenting, and was not too happy about it.

I used to feel disconcerted when I thought about this as “bribing”.  With a different frame of mind, I’m able to think about the process as a learning opportunity.

In the classroom we refer to this as “first – then“.  Some folks call it “grandma’s rule“.

Any behavior that a child likes to do can be used as a reward for doing a less preferred activity.
