Behaved children

For a lot of parents these days, having a well-behaved child comes with a very expensive price. According to researchers, most young children today are bribed with money just so they'll be on their best behaviour. Daily Mail's report on the survey conducted by the Child Trust Fund tells us that aside from their weekly allowance, kids get extra money just by doing their bed or feeding the pet.

Almost half of the children's "earnings" are rewards (or bribe) for good behaviour, more than thirty percent are for doing household chores and the rest are for getting good grades in school or helping care for the family pet. The findings of this survey show us the important role that children play in our economy. Experts say that today's generation is handling more money than the generations before them. So if you want your kids to behave, then make sure your pockets are loaded.

Is it right for us to give our children money just so they'll behave well? What other ways can we use to motivate our kids to be well-behaved?
