School is back in session which means in some cases your child has work to do at their job, school, and at home after. Just because the school year has started it doesn’t mean that household chores get put on hold. On the contrary, that just means your child may be getting pulled in different directions.
Children need motivation when it comes to keeping up with both schoolwork and housework. No one wants to do something where they are not recognized for their efforts. Why not as parents start a recognition program that will help motivate them both at home and at school.
Certificates are an easy way to acknowledge good work and show you care what your child does. Certificates can be printed off online for just about any topic and subject possible. They are an easy way to not only recognize a job well done, but that simple bit of encouragement will be a motivation for your child to continue their good work.
There are a lot of topics where parents can print out certificates to recognize their child. Starting with the work they are responsible for around the house. No one likes chores, but they especially do not like them when no one recognizes their efforts for doing them. Why not keep your child motivated by showing them you see what they contribute around the house.
There are some parents that say, ‘why should I recognize my child for doing what is expected of them,’ the answer is simple, because it is a nice pick-me-up. When you are at work, you do what is expected of you, but you still enjoy when the boss or someone tells you when you did a job well done. The feeling is no different when it comes to your child. Maybe your children have a hard time getting along with one another, maybe they don’t enjoy picking up their things in their room or making a bed or helping with dinner. Perhaps a certificate or reward system will be just the motivation they need. Maybe your child made their bed without being reminded. Perhaps they handled a disagreement with a sibling in a civilized manner or maybe they offered to help with dinner before being asked. All of these things deserve some sort of recognition. A certificate or plaque may be the thing that motivates them to keep helping out on their own.
School is another area where you can celebrate your child’s accomplishments. Not every student is good at every subject. Some students struggle with subjects like English and Math. Why not recognize when they do well in these challenging subjects. A high score on an assignment, quiz or test is a big deal for a child who has to work twice as hard for those good grades. You can print off something that tells them about a job well done. Maybe a perfect attendance recognition is in order. Maybe your child isn’t particularly athletic but did well in gym class. Whatever it is it takes no effort to put it down on paper.
