My parents never bribed me to get good grades.

Although... when I was really little, my dad got me the Little Mermaid poster I wanted because I did well. Haaaaaa.

But yeah. I knew a lot of people whose parents promised them all sorts of shit if they did well in school. My house didn't work that way, and I'm actually pretty glad for it. My sister and I got good grades anyway.

LOL well they aren't gonna get me a airplane if I ask for it. It's mostly a $500 range They say they don't mind spending money on stuff I want as long as I try hard in school and keep my grades up. I accept that and try my best, although I should be trying harder but old habits die hard xD

Lot of parents are really proud when they see an A and I guess more people are able to afford it or think differently than your time so they spend $

Nothing shocks me these days. Parenting has become more and more difficult and motivating kids has come to this. I've seen it with my 18yr old cousin.

I was bribed my whole life to get better grades all the way till the end of highschool, Graduated with the highest average in my schools history (99.8) class president and all that other good stuff.

In the end they lived up to their end of the deal and bought me a 25,000 dollar car, and my parents were by no means a rich people, so they obviously saved ahead of time.

Bribeing works!

I'm not ancient.

I'm also not saying your parents aren't proud.

my parents are quick to take away things if marks are bad, or implement new rules in the house. after i got a bad mark, the rule was, for every hour of TV i watch (or videogame i play, or surf the interwebs), i must study for one hour, i was essentially buying TV watching time with studying. Fortunately, with these things my parents kinda live in the moment, and after a week they completely forget

Also just so your all aware, I was never told the stipulations, I was just told "the better you do the better you get" so I busted my ass.
