This discussion aims to understand why rewards and extrinsic motivation are a part of how we view achievement. In addition, this discussion will also try to highlight why a reward system might be detrimental to the developmental processes of children. If we are already in a framework where rewards are the primary motivator, how do we wean ourselves and our children away from it? What could take its place?
