Re: Dear DH... pick less expensive things to bribe with!
We've never bribed for potty training purposes, but my dh bribed my dd to learn how to read Hebrew. She wasn't feeling confident about it, I guess; every learning session involved a lot of drama about how hard it was and even tears. One day, when I wasn't around, dh told her she could have an AMERICAN GIRL DOLL once she successfully completed her reading book (over a period of weeks or months). I wasn't too happy about that when I heard about it, but dd did have a much better attitude after that.
