I am a lone parent with 3 different ages boys
. my first son is eight years old. He is very good at school but some time its very difficult to manage at he. I want him to do some extra work at home. But always he TD me if I do this can I watch movie or not? I do not want him to watch too much. What can I do with him!

My middle son was a little like that. I found that if you found ways to encourage without promises it worked better for me. I often made my son feel as though he was a very big help to me and I appreciated it. He is now 19 and still is there when I need some help. Every now and then I will give him 20 dollars to say thank you . He always leaves it somewhere in the house before he leaves. He is a wonderful son and as always I am thankful for him. Letting your children know you appreciate them is often the biggest reward you can give. Having three children I had never been one to give rewards when they were smaller. Also as for television, we only watch ours together. Even if I watched Barney a thousand times. I don't turn it on and they don't ask if I have worked to do it has to be done first. Just some ideas. Good luck to you.
