Do you reward your kids for good grades? What do you do?
No. I was never rewarded and always got straight As. You can motivate most kids without monetary/material rewards.
I gave my daughter $250 for AP scores of 5. (Voluntarily - she didn't ask for it).
In the workplace, she would be rewarded for outstanding work, so why not?
No, just verbal praise. My family will give them like $5 though.
Nope, that is what they are responsible for. I tell them good job, and that I am proud of them.
We do a positive activity to celebrate school success...
What we do varies - but it is a desired activity, not a monetary pay off for the the kids.
No. We expect our boys to do their best, and praise them when they do well. They take pride in their work, and want to succeed. They see the value in learning for the sake of knowledge, not because they are getting paid. I do understand that money can be a motivator in certain situations, but we really stress the power of knowledge.
