Cashing In

Sometimes getting Hank ready for school in the morning (getting dressed, eating breakfast, combing hair, brushing teeth, locating shoes and socks, and packing his backpack) can be a lot like herding cats, often leaving him feeling hassled and harassed and me feeling harried and haggared. So, a month or so ago, I devised an incentive program whereby Hank would earn a quarter each morning that he completed his responsibilities in a timely and obedient manner. Yesterday, Hank was able to exchange his $5 worth of quarters for a game of bowling. I think we've both enjoyed having more peaceful morning-times since we began our incentive plan--great job, Hanky!
