My recent exploration of alternative and complementary currency schemes, has given me an idea. If I will have children sometime in the future, I will focus on rewarding good behaviour rather than punishing bad behaviour. How will I do this?
Many parents require that their children do chores. I will not make doing chores compulsory for my children, instead I will persuade them to do so. My children will earn a certain amounts of credits for each chore they do, including cleaning their rooms. With these credits they can “buy” privileges, what privileges will depend on what my children want.
I hope this will motivate my children to do chores. If they don’t, fine but then also no privileges. And if my children will be really naughty, my partner and I could subtract their credits – as a punishment.
