Question for Ya....

7 of 8's therapist and I were talking today about creative ways to encourage 7 of 8 to let us adjust her crawl, motivate her to cover more distance, ways to induce her to go for the gold. We were throwing around that we don't necessarily want to motivate her with food because it sort of feels like that makes food a reward and given the present food-obsessiveness of our country, that might not be a good thing.

So weigh in (no pun intended). Do you think rewarding kids with food (for what ever reason; chores, therapy goals, good behavior, etc.)is a good idea or a bad one? Would love to hear your thoughts....
