I saw this and have repeated this story to countless friends, most have been surprised at the outcome. I want to know what you think of what she did?
A mother is walking through a shopping centre pushing a pram with two children walking with her.
As they walk, they pass a lolly machine, the one where you put in some coins turn a handle and a lolly comes out. Just then the little boy with her chucks the greatest wobbly I've ever seen, he wants a lolly, he pulls at his moms dress, he crys, he falls on the floor, screaming he wants a lolly.
Everybody around her feels sorry for the mum, but can't help. The mother is really embarresed, all efforts to console him fail, he won't get off the floor and the mother can't get him up.
Out of desperation, she reaches for her purse, opens it and scrambles around in it.
She pulls out a chocolate frog...
What do you think she did next?......What would you have done?
She gave the chocolate to the other child, the one who was walking with her quitely.
Of course! Brilliant she rewarded the child that deserves the chocolate, and sat down and waited until the little boy final exhausted himself and came crying to his mom. She told him that when they went home, he could help her cook a cake together and he could eat some chocolate then.
I realised then, how fantastic that action was. She rewarded the child that was behaving well and not the child that was carrying on like a pork chop.
...then I watch politicians hand money out to banks that have failed....to car industries because they cry the loudest and I think, I wish they had seen that.
Throw your own tantrum by crying and rolling around the floor, screaming "i want a lolly"
Make him eat so many lollies that he gets sick and develops and aversion to them
Eat the chocolate frog yourself making sure to lick off every bit of chocolate from the wrapping
Get out the cattle prod
Pull on his leash
