4 Incentives You Can Offer That Could Help Your Child Achieve Their SAT- Los Gatos SAT Test Prep Services

Offering incentives to your child can help them achieve their goals. Often, knowing there is something to

look forward to can help your child put forth some extra effort.

Incentives can be offered in small steps, such as trading screen time for hours spent studying.

Alternatively, one big incentive can be offered when an SAT goal score is achieved. Here are four creative

ideas that can be offered as a big incentive.

1) Money

Don’t just offer to give your child cash. Instead offer to relieve them of a financial responsibility they

usually have. You could pay for gas for the summer or offer them a gift card to their favorite store. You

could get them an iTunes or Amazon gift card that they could look at while they study, but not use until

after the exam.

2) An Experience

Offer to do something crazy with your child. Think about sky diving, surfing or playing at an open mic night

with your child. Not only will you be rewarding your child, but you will be creating a memory together.

Make sure this incentive is something you know your child will enjoy and they know moves you well

beyond your comfort zone.

3) Chores

If your child is required to do specific chores around the house, you can let them have some time off.

Offer them a specific amount of time of from all chores such as no chores for 2 weeks or a longer time off

from one chore, such as no dishes for the whole summer. If you offer this incentive, make sure the whole

family is on board. You don’t want other children feeling like they are picking up the slack. You can also

make it clear that they will be offered a similar reward when it is their turn for the SAT.

4) Social Celebration

Offer your child an opportunity to do something with a group of friends. It could be a camping trip, a dinner

out, or a trip to an amusement park. Let them pick the activity, and offer to take your child and a few of

their friends. Your child will look forward to celebrating their hard work.

Be creative and find an incentive that you know will inspire your child and help them look forward to the

days when the exam is over. Offering a fun incentive can be exciting for both you and your child and will

help them work hard to achieve their SAT goals.
