comment My daughter wants me to read other's minds
In addition, it's an opportunity to ask why she thinks the other is (say) being unsafe and, when she guesses, to explore: "do you think being in a hurry to get home is worth the risks of that sort of weaving & speeding?" (no?) "So why else might they be doing that?" Etc. Make it into a game: 1st, one of you thinks of the "obvious" answer, then the other has to come up with 3 [plausible, but not necessarily correct] alternate explanations. I do this "3 alternate explanations" thing whenever I'm puzzled by another's behaviour, and it serves me well.

comment Why should children be rewarded for good behaviour?
In addition to "generally expected behaviour", there's the angle that "belonging to this family is the reward for meeting basic expectations." There are many schools of thought, of course, but I agree with you on this one.
