Hi, my name is Erin O'Connor
I have been doing research in school about different types of motivation. I've learned that paying for good grades in school can actually have negative effects to children.
I have made a handbill for everyone to see about the topic!
I love the little Handbill. It is so organized and cute! Plus the studies you mentioned in it are very interesting. I never new that giving a reward could actually have a bad outcome. Thanks for teaching me something new Erin!
I actually agree with paying kids for good grades. I mean if it gets them to do the work they are supposed to do then why not just use it? It's like an incentive.
I created a "Success Ladder" (using a clipart image of a ladder) and when my son
received good grades or went above and beyond, I highlighted a step on the ladder. He
would simply light up with joy. When the ladder was completed, I rewarded him with a
"special" toy for his hard work and motivation. "I believe our children not only need to be
educated, they need to be motivated." -www.SilkyParks.com
How do you keep track of how much money kid should receive for good grades and good behaviour?
