From 4-year old logic to 7-year old wisdom

I did not mention to Griffin that I wrote about rewards recently. He just busted out with the following all on his own:

Let me tell you a secret about teaching.

If you give a kid a cougar paw (or a reward) the first time they do something, don’t do it the next time. They’re probably just doing it to get the reward.

Then it won’t count as a reward because they’re trying to get it. They’re trying to trick the teacher into giving it to them.

This will help you be a better teacher.
