Using Money To Reward And Punish Kids
Why it’s bad
Unfortunately, in the real world, your child will not receive a pay bonus just for doing adequate work. If you think about it, that’s what an A is—it’s work that doesn’t have any mistakes. And that’s the exact type of work any employer will expect. A boss will not pay you extra because you simply didn’t mess up. Take your child to a nice dinner or a movie to celebrate her A. That is what your kid’s spouse will one day do, when she gets praise at work.
