In the short run, it will definitely help the teachers in the school to motivatethe kids to behave appropriately, to be regular in the class and also will help in giving betterperformance in the studies and other activities. But if attention will not be paid in the selection ofthe reward it will make lose interest in the subjects.Being a parent, I will suggest that, rewards should not be used until and unless there is aparticular reason and if rewards are being used then they should be used for limited time period.If we talk about the implications of the rewards in the long run, then it might have a negativeimpact on the behavior of the child. For motivating the kids to perform well can be understood,but later on, in life that kid will always look forward to such incentives. Furthermore, when he isnot able to get such rewards and incentives as he used to get, he may not even want to any work.Until and unless it offers some rewards and incentive for doing a particular work. Such kids willalways look forward to incentives instead of other benefits that particular work may providethem.6.21. The behavior of human teaches us to respond to reward and punishment.
