Alternate Incentive

Certain children will have the attitude that they do not need to earn an incentive prize given for such things as learning memory verses or bringing a friend and will ask to have one anyway.

You may, however, chose to find another way of awarding the child, such as asking the child to help straighten up chairs or distribute memory verse tokens or take-home papers.
