When he's grown, just think how much candy he'll feel justified in eating if
he repairs a dishwasher, or puts away ALL the dishes and washes all the pans,
or what if he were to pour concrete in the yard or plant trees!? He would
earn POUNDS of candy.

(I say this because I have that mentality, deep down, that if I'm good I can
have candy, and THAT is not healthy.)
I was at a workshop where we were looking at different developmental stages,
and the good and bad things about them. When we got to Adult, everyone
brainstormed a long list of the disadvantages quickly, and were VERY slow to come up
with positives.

Then we came up with two: Sex, and we can have candy whenever we want.

We agreed that made it worth it.
