Bribery begins at home!





Me and everyone around me has the habit of bribing Harvynna with food. It always works! When she does not want to get into the car seat, I will offer her bread, or a lollipop or a biscuit and she will immediately jump onto her seat. Now it has become a habit and she keeps asking for food in the car seat. Its either, ‘Mummy, I want bikit’, or ‘Mummy, I want lollipop’ or ‘Mummy, I want bed (bread)’. If I don’t have any with me, She will say,’ mummy go buy sweet’ or ‘Mummy, put petol in the car’ because she knows whenever I stop to put petrol, she gets a ‘reward’ from the petrol mart for being a good girl and sitting quietly in the car.

This weekend, she woke up from her afternoon nap with a fright as there was really bad thunder and lightning. She wanted ‘Diddy’ but he had gone out. So there again, I bribed her, ‘Harvynna, do you want cake?’ and immediately her eyes lit up saying,’ cake, cake, cake!’’ On Sunday, she was bribed with bananas, of which she gobbled the whole thing up by herself. There I was hoping to have half of it! No wonder she weighs 16 kgs at 22 months!

Jazzmint & Mom2ashley: i have to agree with you. We were at the mamak shop once and the waiter told her he will give her a sweet and she happily followed him :( Actually, thats how kidnappers lure children in shopping centres
