I don’t bribe my son very often to be good, not with money or toys, but this week we tried some very cheap bribery. My son saw a cool $1.48 bath bomb at target and wanted it. He’s only 10, so a bath bomb would make taking a bath fun and he promised to be good at school. As you can see from previous blog posts, my son has some difficulties behaving, so anything to help us make it through a week with out a phone call from the school would be great!
So I told my son that I would buy him a bath bomb if he was good. I waited all day to hear from the teacher, and I when I went to pick up my son, I got the good news that the bribe worked. I have actually done this two days in a row – so he was good for two days and I got him one bath bomb for those days, and he will receive one more on Friday if he can make it through the rest of the week. He is ecstatic!
The reason I try to not bribe him is because it’s usually costly and something my son will not use after one week – but with the bath bomb it was cheap and he’s going to use it in the bath for fun and then it is gone anyways. It’s a win win situation. So far it’s working great.
Now as for the rest of my day – I have actually been working. Not on blog stuff unfortunately, but with my part time job as a medical coder. Yep it’s one of the days I work today. I don’t mind working, I just don’t really enjoy training people. I shouldn’t really complain, I feel needed. And it’s hard when you are a stay at home parent and no one is around to tell you that you are doing a good job.
To all of you stay at home parents – whether you work or not – You are doing a magnificent job!
In my free time I am trying to find some good blogging opportunities to share on here with you all. Like tomorrow I will be completing some of my reviews I have mentioned – since I actually have time. I will also be adding a new link to my photography eventually. I am trying to figure out what I want to share on here and when. I will be blogging my weight loss soon, and any healthy goals I set myself. I am hoping to get my pre-baby shape back.
Let me know what kind of diets worked for you ? And what do you do to get your children to behave ?
