Incentive: noun - something, such as the fear of punishment or the expectation of reward, that induces action or motivates effort

My boys are in day two of testing. Thing One was ready to start by 8:00 morning - guessing he's ready to get all of this over with. Thing Two could probably care less about testing and will probably fuss when it is his turn for the day.

I'm looking ahead at their tests and noticing that they are well prepared. Believe that when they fully understand that the school year is over when tests are over, they'll be more motivated to work diligently on their tests. So, the incentive to work on their tests is that there will be more freedom for them, they will also have the right to watch t.v. again. Both are great motivators for them.

Off to refocus my children,
