Positive Reinforcements

Positive reinforcements are very important (Child development 101) They also work with pets (Puppy Training at PetCo)

What I just learned is that positive reinforcements work incredibly well with husbands. You see, yesterday my dear husband was home all day. He did laundry, he worked around the house, he cleaned the first floor. For this, he was handsomely rewarded. We’re not talking pat on the back here.

This morning he got up early, made coffee, folded and put away laundry, got the kids dressed and THEN made French toast with bananas and whipped cream. If he keeps this up I’m going to have a stripper pole installed in our bedroom.

Now the dangerous part is when he figures out that all that work=rewards.

a stripper pole? How are you going to explain that to the childrens or the holiday company?

I guess the hubs should do the work before the reward .. cause my husband thinks it should be the other way around. And you can guess who gets the bad end of that deal! Ha! We'll have to work on that.
