VEGETABLE EXPRESSIONS-5: meaning and examples
Good morning everyone.
Today we finish our look at common vegetable expressions in English.
Today's expression is: The carrot and stick (approach)
Meaning: to persuade someone to make more of an effort by offering them a reward if they do something well, and punishment if they do not. In other words, it's the combination of rewarding good behaviour and punishing bad behaviour.
Most prisons take a carrot-and-stick approach to the rehabilitation of juvenile criminals.
