Mike and Nicole’s OPP: Bribing our Kids

George Doyle

Dear Mike and Nicole,

My 13 year-old son has started off the school year by doing poorly in class. His grades are far below average. My husband and I are trying to think of ways to motivate him. I think we should reward him with a new game console if he maintains a B average for the rest of the semester. My husband disagrees and says it’s his responsibility to maintain a B average and that we shouldn’t have to bribe him to get him to do well in school.

Is it wrong to offer a game console as a reward as positive motivation? My husband says bribes are illegal so bribing our son will make him believe it’s OK to buy people.
