  Case: Teacher's Child Lacking Motivation
I have a teacher's child in my classroom this year. He is extremely smart and capable, however, has a very hard time getting anything done in the classroom. When I have conversations with his teacher mom, she does not seem concerned with this. If I send the work home with him, it does not get completed or returned. Our school has a strict policy on not taking away recess from students, and I have tried setting a time on his desk, walking by him and redirecting him often, and moving his desk closer to me. Nothing has worked. How can I push this child to his fullest potential and help his mother realize that he is very capable but lacks motivation?
Solution: (Rates are posted for this solution!)
For the students who lack motivation, I would offer them some type of positive reinforcement or motivator. Sticker, public praise, candy, etc.
