Just curious..... can you bribe your difficult child to get homework done with money? Missy has issues with Word Searches....I can't understand this, because it's a fun thing, but this has been a source of meltdown after meltdown. Eventually, I asked the teacher (as well as a few other parents) to not give them for homework. She stopped for a while, but is giving them out again. Today, I bribed Missy that for every word she got by herself, I would give her a nickel. She likes to get money for stuff. She helped me clean the house yesterday. I gave her small things to do, but there were about 7 or eight things. I gave her two bucks and she was tickled pink. She's saving for a new Razor Scooter, since her cheap Barbie scooter broke. So are your difficult child's driven by money?
