Stickers — Cycle 87+


Stickers — Cycle 87+


Tim and Tiff are encouraged to do chores with a sticker grid.  If they do enough chores, then they get to have a treat. Tiff has done so many chores that her grid is filled with stickers. Meanwhile, Tim has only done a few here and there. Tim sneaks into Tiff's room and steals her stickers. He tries to fool Mom and Dad, but they know better and explain to him that this is not honest. Tim feels guilty, but then decides that he will only feel better if he actually does the chores and earns the reward the right way. At the end, both children have earned their treats.
