What if your child does not respond to motivation?

Updated: Jun 4, 2019

If a child doesn’t complete missions, it’s most likely that the rewards offered aren’t sufficiently attractive, or the price of rewards in points seems inadequate to the child in proportion to the required efforts.

Of course, that doesn’t mean that a child perceives the situation adequately. In the latter case, you can attempt to explain to the child why his or her concept is not realistic.

You can also try to create simpler missions, awarding a relatively large number of points for them. Every time your child completes a mission, the child will feel like they succeeded, and his or her useful action habit will be reinforced. Meanwhile, a greater number of points will allow to receive a reward faster, bringing on an even greater experience of success. You can gradually make the missions more difficult and make the price of their completion more adequate.
