Motivation: The Circle Part I

If a young adult is not motivated in school because of prior academic experiences, who is responsible for motivating them? Should the child be responsible for self-motivating or is it the teachers’ or parents responsibility to motivate them?

Day after day, some students with language based disabilities meet academic failure,”F’s” and “D’s” on assignments, demeaning comments, confusion etc. Over time, that student will stop putting in the effort. No one likes to fail. Yet, as a parent, it is your job to educate your child. How do you motivate them? What do you do?
