Google+ Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr +

Some parents start a reward system that they just can not live up to as the child grows and progresses into other grades. It is important to let your child know you appreciate them and what they have accomplished but you should also avoid tactics like money or candy. Candy is not good for a child and money is less important when the child starts making their own money. Below are a few things you can try to reward good grades.

Things You’ll Need:

  • Good Report Card
  • Time
  • Crown
  • Family Trip
  • Sleep Over

Instructions

Step 1

Time:
The first and most important thing you can give a child is time. If you start this young in life you will see there are many treat advantages to giving a little time to your child. A walk in the park, read a story, or playing a game together is a few things you can do and these will make the biggest impact on your child’s self esteems.

Step 2

King or Queen:
Young children can be a king or queen for the day. They really enjoy the attention and the constant reminder of a crown will stick with them for a long time to come. As the child gets older you can change this to rule maker for the day or remote control captain. Older kids like extra computer time as a reward.

Step 3

Family trip:
As for a long term reward for good grades you can fill a jar with cotton balls. Once the jar is completely filled you can take a family trip. Even a short trip to the zoo can be a real treat for families that spend so much time wrapped up in daily activities. Kids really love is when you can take a little time away from work to spend with them. This really makes them feel like the most important person in your life.

Step 4

Sleep over:
Let you child have a friend stay the night as a reward for good grades. Kids enjoy having friends come over and this reward can be a way for you to also get to know the kids your child is hanging around with.

Tips & Warnings

  • Watch for sibling rivalry. Make sure you never compare one child’s report card to another. You should also never reward or review a report card for one child in front of another as this could cause lower self esteems. Explain that everyone learns at a different speed and level and everyone should be rewarded for the things they do well and will work on the things they don’t do well.
