Rewarding behavior is key to parenting teens, study suggests Parenting is hard, and parenting teens brings about an entirely new set of challenges, from keeping their rooms clean to getting them home before curfew. But, a new study suggests parents who want their teenagers to keep their grades up could have better success if they focus more on rewarding good behavior and less on threatening to punish the bad.

Each symbol was consistently associated with a fixed chance of a reward, punishment, or no outcome.

Motivational Techniques for Teenagers In her book "Child Development," Laura Berk, professor of psychology at Illinois State University, said she believes that unmotivated teens develop learned helplessness, which means they believe they do not have the ability to succeed.
