I see a lot of comments and questions from parents with kids just starting out with glasses wondering if they should use bribery to get their child to wear their glasses, or feeling guilty for bribing their child. I’m betting that a lot of us used bribery in the beginning to help our children get used to their glasses. Once your child sees (pun intended) what their glasses do for their vision, most will wear their glasses without extra encouragement. It’s just getting them to that point that’s the trick.
So how about you? Did you (do you) use bribery to get your child to wear his or her glasses? If so, what have you used? If not, what other strategies did you use to encourage your child to leave the glasses on?
