I totally agree! I think that rewards and incentives can always be present they might just change their form. For example, a good reward for me would not be a toy but maybe praise or something like a pay check. For a young boy, they may love extra time with a computer game or something.

Motivation is so important and powerful. Knowing what motivates a student is even more powerful and useful!
