Behavioral and emotional development

My husband is always bribing our children with toys and sweets?

It may be helpful to have a conversation with your husband about the reasons behind his behavior and the potential impact it could have on your children’s development. Bribing children with material things can lead to a lack of intrinsic motivation and may also contribute to unhealthy eating habits if sweets are used as a reward. Instead, consider promoting positive behavior through non-material rewards such as praise, extra playtime, or special privileges. It’s also important to set clear boundaries and consequences for when rules are broken. Open communication with your husband is key.
