Need advice on incentives but not bribery or money to get my 11 year old son at high school to do his homework with a bit more effort and not at the last moment. He gets project homework - several subjects with tasks to be completed in approx 1 month. School thinks he will learn to manage his time! Even things he likes, like art, ICT he does not want to do as soon as it is called homework and he must do it.
Tried before tea after a snack, tried after tea, tried weekends, tried helping, finding information etc - he just hates to do it and does minimum required.
If he was offered a game or large reward he would more likely do it, but do not want to get sucked into that.
Help - got 5 years at least to go.
