You know what I got for having good grades in school? Nada. Well actually I got into university and college which helped me land this job, but as far as a reward from my parents…HA!
Apparently this is a thing…parents paying for grades…and these kids are making coin!
According to a recent poll more than four in five parents are offering rewards to their kids like cash, holidays and gadgets if they come home with a great report card.
The average total amount parents plan to spend on rewards for their child’s hard work is about $450. Some parents give straight cash while others give gifts of money towards the school prom, game consoles, laptops, tablets and money to buy a car.
Have you ever given a reward to your kid(s) for good grades?
Did you ever get anything from your parents for doing well in school?
