Where does the boundary here lie? My fiance and I were discussing how we were going to handle things like behavioral issues, slacking off in school, just general disciplinary issues that will come up over the course of the next 16 years, and we are a little stuck here.
I completely believe in the differences that you see in children whose parents use negative reinforcement vs. those whose parents use positive reinforcement. But when does it become a bribe?
