I'm sure that this has stirred up some debate on here before but I'm struggling with this one. I have a 7th grade student that is VERY concerned with external rewards. Everytime I ask him to do something he wants to come up with some kind of deal like "if I do my homework you'll buy me a candy bar." I've NEVER consented to this and have no idea where he got the idea that I would! However, I talked to the school counselor and she wants me to comply!!! Granted, I've only been working with this child for 4 weeks now and maybe she does know more about this situation than I do (which is a whole other post in itself!) but I am really REALLY struggling with bribing this student to do every homework assignment I want him to do! Any advice on this one?
