When DS was younger he LOVED school and the pride of getting great grades with little effort, the problem with that was that from K-5th grade he aced everything with no effort! When he got to 6th grade and the work started getting harder he didn't know how to work hard so when his first 5week report came we told him that we were very disappointed and he needed to bring the grades up, we had to then teach him how to do the work he didn't get right away and asking for help was so new to him he had a hard time with it. So we appealed to something that mattered to him-$- when his first report card of 6th grade came I told him for every point he went up in each class on the next report card he would get $1 BUT for every point down he owes me $1! He is now a junior and we still use it because it usually works although the last rc of last year he owed me $!
