Rewarding for special accomplishments, I am all for it. I am not for rewarding absolutely everything especially if it is expected that the child do well. I think it is okay to set certain rules with regards to rewards to that they have something to look forward to. Should not be something outrageous either where as later the parent may not be able to keep their promise.

I agree with you.As a parent ,We should set some rules with a child before rewarding.

@hardworkingdurl: I believe everything must have a limit, and giving rewards to your children has no exception...Personally, I don't think giving money to them as a good reward...I believe the better way to do that is by using that very money for some investment on behalf of your children...Besides saving more money for the future education of your children, you can teach them how to save as well...They might feel offended in some way, but eventually they will know the exact reason why you do that... lowland123: What rules you have in mind, my friend? Do you mind to share it with us?

Well, rewards doesn't have to be expensive...it doesn't even need to bought, a simple hug or kiss and a "GREAT JOB" can be surprisingly a reward already for the children...though there are rewards that are in form of toys or play time, but then again you don't have to spend too much on it...

@marapplestiffy: I believe that a reward does not always need to have monetary gains or materialistically present...Like you have already said, a simply kiss or compliment will do the trick as well...But perhaps it will not last very long, especially when the kids are older Mom's kiss will no longer work towards them ...Just play with the beat and you will find the best way how to reward your children... Happy mylotting!

Award you can give tangible compliment, or the form of goods, then point out the reason that it is you do because as a form of appreciation for his accomplishments or a good behavior he was doing.

I suggested that reward should be given when kid does more than expected,Otherwise,it will lead to ineffectiveness. I think kid can be motivated to do well and develop a long-lasting good behaviors.

@phoyin: I agree that not rewarding them when it matters can be disastrous...Money can be a good motivation, although too much money can lead to greater disaster...A reward every now and then can be a good boost for them, and should be an incentive for them to do better in things they are working on at...

@ritzz07: For obvious reason everyone needs rewards sometimes as motivation...It is a materialistic world after all, isn't it? Even the very reason why we are here is to money... I believe many of us will not think of doing those online works without money as their motivation in mind...It is the ugly truth, unfortunately...

I don't think so.If the child can get the rewards from the parents,the child is a good child.

I think it's a good idea to let the kid know that their good work is appreciated. But you shouldn't bring your child up to expect a reward just for taking a normal part in the functioning of the household. At some point they need to realise that jobs have to be done whether there's a reward going or not.

i think it a good idea for the children giving them a reward, for further meditate children in the learning, and for them a big thing that i appreciated, you even if they do simple things simply, and some they point need to realize, that every job that they're proud you're finish with them, but not everything can be given them because they will spoild if so always.
