Bribe

Everyone has an opinion. Especially about parenting. Mine? Bribery is actually very effective and useful and I like it.

The other day we were walking through a store during a stop between plymouth and boston, and I really needed Violet to use the bathroom there instead of during an emergency exit from the freeway to find a bathroom.

“Violet, if you can go peepee in the potty, Mommy will give you some fishy crackers.”

“Otay Mom! Fishy crackers yummy Vi-wee tummy!”

Then, after five minutes of singsonging in the echo’y bathroom, the magic happened.

Violet: “Ahhhh….fishy crackers…”

Also, i know–i just blogged about peepee in the potty. If you don’t like it, i’m sure there’s plenty of blogs out there that don’t use bathroom humor.
