Rewarding Not Spoiling

In trying to encourage good behavior, you might be tempted to offer your child a reward like a new toy or cookie.

 

But material rewards don’t always drive home the right reason for the behavior. Try to connect good behavior with a related reward—preferably one that isn’t materialistic.

For example, if your child picks up her toys without a fuss, you can play a game together before dinner because there will be extra time to do this.
