“If you get five As on your report card, I’ll buy you that bike” “If you stop crying, you can get a cookie out of the jar”: the child might be good at the store, get five As, and stop crying, but the responsible actions are performed for the payoff, not out of a sense of self-worth, self-control, and self-responsibility. Children are robbed of the opportunity to take risks, make mistakes, and question adults, for fear of losing the promised rewards or losing a parent’s goodwill.
