  • I dont motivate my kids to go to school. They motivate themselves because they know what I expect. My girls are 6th and 10th grade this year and they know the deal. They must do their best at everything. My son is homeschooling and I think hes motivated. I think he likes the idea of being at home with me and he needs my attention right now.

  • I don't motivate, school is not an option. It is my child's job. Going to school is not only about recieving an education, it is also about learning life skills that will also help in the work world and in his everyday life. My son must do his best and get a B average or the threat of tutoring and summer school start. I also take away all electronics and the computer except for school.
