Sometimes it's nice to get advice from experts with a lot of letter degrees behind their names, but other times, you just need to hear what another parent (with a M.O.M. behind her name) has done that has worked. You've got questions? These moms have answers.

reward for a 3 year old

I have just started a chore list for my son but I dont know what to reward him with at the end of the week. He is 3 years old so I dont think money is a good incentive and I dont want dollar store toys everywhere. any suggestions would be great. thanks

hi, I was actually wondering what kind of chores you have him do? I have a 3yr old too, and need to start teaching responsibility...I think a reward can be based on what you do or don't do on a regular day, such as a reward to the playground or something..
The best rewards for children are special time with mom or dad! tell him that he can choose between, say, going with you to a playgroud or bowling or the library (whatever are his special places/outings). This is always better than material "stuff."Lori Day, Educational
