What is the up side?
The down side is that the child is learning:
a. to get good grades in order to get a reward, because doing good schoolwork apparently is not worthwhile in itself;
b. to be motivated by money instead of by a sense of responsibility for completing the tasks assigned;
c. to strive for a particular grade instead of for the best possible understanding of the subject matter;
d. that if she has plenty of money on hand at the moment, there is no point in working hard at school.
|Also, I intend to pay for C's as well. In the school world a "C" is an average grade and I think average is just great! It shouldn't be punished or seen as something bad. I think kids are pushed too hard as it is and a little average-quality work can be good for them|
