Sharing a Twitter thread that went extremely viral because it’s a clever way to get your child to read more!
I love this concept on many levels. Creating an incentive for a child to better themselves is powerful and clearly effective (at least with this particular child).
We pay my oldest $1 every time he reads a book. We’re talking 160 page chapter books. 😂
I’m out $120 this year and he thinks he’s ripping me off. Best investment ever.

Didn’t realize “encouraging reading” could be such a controversial topic, so I’ll end on this:
He’s a great kid and thrives in academics and sports. More importantly, he is a loving older brother/friend/son.
I am proud to be his dad. Don’t worry about my kid! He will be okay!
