We all want to motivate our teens to do their best in school. But research suggests that some things simply don't work very well. Here are some things to avoid:
~Unearned praise.
~Fear, threats and punishment. ("If you don't get at least a B on this test, there will be no TV for a month.")
~Overly simplified statements. ("No guts, no glory.")
~Name-calling, nagging, blaming or placing guilt. ("You're lazy and you'll never get into college if you don't straighten up.")
