Demanding more sets poor example

After reading the article regarding the Sebastopol couple’s disappointment about receiving a small reward after finding and returning to the rightful owner $91,750 in Nevada City, I’m appalled at their need for a more substantial reward for doing what was the honest and honorable thing to do. The more appropriate message to the children who benefitted from the reward money (and the rewardees) is that when you do what is the right thing, many times there is no reward other than knowing you did what you did was right. And if you do receive a reward, it is for doing the honorable thing. Making a big deal out of trying to get more money for a reward doesn’t make for a good example.
