    You know what they say about laughter being the best medicine. Anyway, life is too short to be grumpy!

    Chocolate works VERY well with adults. I used to pass out Dove chocolates, the ones in the Promises package with the affirmations on the inside of the wrapper - whether students ate the chocolate was their business, but they HAD TO read the affirmation; and once for a student who was allergic to chocolate I made the supreme sacrifice by unwrapping and eating the chocolate on her behalf. But then stupid Dove changed the inside wrapper to a message selling the chocolate, and the price went up by half...

    But I notice that Nestle's is offering Jingles this year: little bell shapes in Crunch or Butterfinger flavors with Trivial Pursuit questions on the insides of the wrappers. Hmmmm...

    If children weren't so spoiled now a days then maybe we wouldn't have to use reward systems like we do today. We've had this discussion plenty of times around here. Children just aren't like they use to be way back when due to different parenting styles, etc. Things are different and teachers have to do what they have to do.

    For the record, I don't BRIBE...unless it's myself;). Reward systems and bribes are two different things to me. It's all on how you work with it.
