I hardly ever bribe my children to do something. But I recently decided to bribe my eldest son into reading regularly. I promised to give him a small prize for every book he finishes (we're keeping a chart, so he can see how well he's doing also). I think this is fine, because it's encouraging him to read (very important) which is not his favourite thing to do. I also know that it won't lead to other kinds of bribery for things like good behaviour, and so on. But perhaps you might think it's wrong to bribe children, no matter what you're bribing them to do?
