Question About Parenting...

We recently got the end-of-year report cards for our two girls and they were both very good.

In the past, we've typically rewarded them with a special treat or toy for their efforts for their academic performance. Last year they each got an American Girl doll.

The question is should we be doing that type of thing? I had a discussion with some parents this past weekend who do not reward their children in this manner. Their rationale is that they want their kids to achieve academic excellence solely for the sake of achievement itself - not for what they can get.

What are your thoughts on this topic? How does it work in your household?
