Do you give your kids money for good grades? Do you think you will do that when your younger kids are in school?

No we don't give money. But at the end of the year if they have had good grades the whole year then we will take them to do something fun of thier choice. Like the movies, putt putt, out to eat, ect.

Can I ask a question without sounding facetious?  What is the difference between rewarding with cash and rewarding with a dinner out or books or anything else?  In one case you are letting them decide what to do with cash, in the other you are choosing what to do?

I see what you mean. Though I don't care what other parents do, I guess I don't see the difference either. =)

We haven't started that yet. I'm not sure if we will or not.

I haven't given money for a good report card. Just praise. Not sure if I will change my mind when they are older...

when i was in jr high and high school i got paid for A's, but had to pay for B's. I think that is a good way to go.

My guy is 6 and loves to learn, so at this point i dont see the need to reward with money/stuff. 

However, if there comes a point and time where my DS is wanting an incentive for a job well done, then i would not be opposed to it. My hubby doesnt "work" for nothing... I like a reward for a job well done (im at SAHM) so its not like someone pays me to do landry or housework... BUT, I enjoy having a clean and organized house...so that is its own reward... When something is difficult or tough, i will reward myself with a treat... So if DS at some point wants a "treat" then by all means. Whatever will help him acheive a goal Im all for...

No we don't! They get a "good job" and "We are so proud of you"! They need to always do well! And if they don't then we'll work together&they'll try harder! They get rewards for other things!

We don't do money but if homework is done with no issues there's a reward. My oldest son has learning disabilitys and grades are a hard thing no matter how well he does
