East St. Louis, IL
30-ish single mother, waitress by day, college by night.
Lives with her 13 year old son at her mother's house.
Sometimes, when my mom wanted me to stop doing something but wasn't getting any results with threats or punishment she'd bribe me with ice cream, money or special privileges. I want to make sure that I'm not attributing a European-American behavior to another culture.
Do African-American parents sometimes bribe their kids too?
