    What a GREAT mother you had. God bless mom! She was a very patient and evolved mother, the type of mother that every mother should aspire to BE..

    Also another motivator was denigrating the child, telling him/her that he/she will work at a dead end job if grades weren't up to snuff. Child would be further told that he/she is not apt, stupid, or retarded.

    I was told to make an A in school. In elementary school, I was an A student but in high school and college,a B student much to my parent's chagrin! If one wasn't an A student, my parents looked down on him/her! They were quite intolerant of failures.
