How to motivate a child

inspiration

Report as

Punishment and reward. If they don't do as told, take away something or don't allow to go somewhere.
If they do as they are supposed to then they can!
It's not that difficult, it does require a consistent effort on the part of the parent.

Thank you Summer.
Yes, punishment. They learn their bad behavior or lack of effort has consequences. It's very important.

Can't get homework done? Can't go to sleep over Saturday night. Watch the motivation then!

depends on the age of the child if they are young then REWARD should be the answer i think

So then the only reason to do what's right is reward? Reward is for above and beyond duties. A on homework, cleaning room without being told.

Inspired? Look what free thinking has done for our children thus far. They are depressed, cutting and killing themselves. Obedience would be wonderfully welcomed. It shows these kids their parents care enough to say NO rather than what ever gets their kids to shut up and vanish quickest.

Depends on the child. Candy, music, money, possessions, or field trips somewhere.

What?

If they behaved they wouldn't be punished. Problem solved. Please use punctuation marks so you are easier to understand.
