Are you paying your kids for good behavior? According to a new survey, you’re not alone. Nearly half of parents said they bribe their kids with candy, clothes and even money to keep them on their best behavior or get good grades.
Some social scientists say it’s a good tactic to motivate children, but others warn it can lead to behavioral problems.
Today on Outnumbered, Kimberly Guilfoyle said she’s a big fan of bribing her son because it works. “It produces great results, and there’s always a counselor later on when this blows up in my face,” she quipped.
On a serious note, Guilfoyle said a reward incentive is a positive tool when children are taught that they have to earn what they receive.
