Been awhile since we/you were asked for advice from a Clarence-Rockland resident. Need advice of your own from grand children, relationships, work…drop us a line anytime, and we’ll ask Clarence-Rockland what they think by providing their advice on our Facebook Page. Need some help, e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org
Salut Derrick & Sylvia:
My 13 year-old son has started off the school year by doing poorly in class. His grades are far below average. My husband and I are trying to think of ways to motivate him. I think we should reward our son with a new game console if he maintains a B average for the rest of the semester. My husband disagrees and says it’s his responsibility to maintain a B average and that we shouldn’t have to bribe him to get him to perform well in school. Do you think it’s wrong to offer a game console as a reward or is this positive motivation? My husband says bribes are illegal so bribing our son will make him believe it’s ok to buy people.
