Boys by nature, work better when they’re trying to WIN at something.
So, set a goal and give a prize! Set it and give him his assignment, the next day tell him you’re gonna set it for something (anything) slightly better than the day before…maybe he usually makes a 93 in math so you’re setting the goal that today is the day he makes the 94 or 95. This is not to rush or overexert because rushing and overexertion lead to mistakes, explain that to him up front. It is a fact that boys like to win. Boys don’t even care what the prize is, they just are wired for the pursuit.
God knew what he was doing when he built our little boys, he knew men would have to be in constant pursuit of finding and bringing things back to meet the needs of a family.
It’s all God, He designed men and set their purpose as provider, protector, etc..
For every purpose God set for men, our Creator built in a mechanism (which drives women crazy quite often) to help man accomplish those purposes.
God even says it right in his word in several places, I’ve ordained you from your mothers womb, I know the plans I have for you, I knit you together, etc etc. All throughout God’s word, he tells us that he has set a purpose…….You need to trust that mama. You need to know that no matter how different your son is, he is the way he is because he was designed to be just who he is by God in order that God’s (not your) purpose can be achieved through and in his life.
See to it that you discover what it takes to help your son achieve at his highest ability, no matter what that is.
