Motivation - parenting and your child

Hi Everyone! I am looking to gather some information about how your perceive motivation to effect your child. I am gathering the information to write a college paper about motivation and children. If you can answer these questions I would be grateful.

What do you do to help motivate your children? To do chores, to complete homework (or other learning activities), to be independent

Do you use rewards on a regular basis to convince your children to do things? What are the rewards (candy, tv time, parent time, …)?

Do you allow them to struggle through some things in order to gain more confidence? If you do, why? If you do not why?

If you were asked “Please help me, my child seems to be lacking the motivation to do anything but sit and watch TV”. What advice would you give them?
