4. Appreciate your child’s achievements
This tip is really disputed since many specialists believe that rewards are a false motivation and chances are the child will work for the sake of the prize only; others claim that material prizes or privileges are important and useful. Anyway, adults don’t go to their jobs because of the mere satisfaction either. We know that we get a paycheck and it’s a good motivation for us.
If you child realizes that studying is important itself it is perfect, but some additional rewards will only help him to do better at school. I would recommend taking a middle ground. Every now and then you can give your child an extra hour of playing computer games, but other times you should praise him with your words or smile or just give the thumbs up.
