There’s no denying the benefit of rewarding students for their hard work. In fact, many parents have started giving monetary rewards to kids who earn good grades! Well call us old fashioned, but we prefer rewards that recognize kids’ effort while also encouraging things like spending time with family, engaging with the world, and learning new skills. And what better way to choose D) All of the Above than with a trip to Skate World Leesburg?
Why Skating Is a Great Reward for Good Grades
- It’s fun. It wouldn’t be much of a reward otherwise! Roller-skating gets kids’ energy (and endorphins) up. We often see kids laughing and smiling as they try new tricks, jam skate to their favorite songs, and breeze around the rink with parents, siblings, or friends.
- It’s good for their brains. Want to sneak in an added benefit? Reward your kids for good grades and invest in their future school success. Studies show that regular physical fitness can improve school performance by reducing stress, improving focus and memory, and even stimulating brain development. Sounds like a great reason to go roller-skating!
- It’s doesn’t build bad habits. Handing out money for good grades may seem great on the surface, but childhood experts disagree about its effectiveness. Cash for grades builds expectations, telling children that they deserve compensation for doing schoolwork. By rewarding your child with an experience instead of a cash prize, you can sidestep the problem of compensation for grades (and have a great day with your kid while you’re at it).
