I have mixed feelings about this. I expect my child to get straight A's which she almost always has. Because of this I limit the amount of chores she has to do. While I don't pay her for grades if there is something special she wants or wants to do I usually say, "we"ll see if your grades are okay" so in a way I guess I do except I have always thought of it as reward.

If you count hugs & kisses & the "I'm so proud of you" as payment, then yes! :) Although, my mom does give them money if they get all A's. But that's Gma's job to spoil them! lol :p They would do it anyway, b/c they are intrinsically motivated to do well.
