Maybe in certain situations, like if the child really struggled.
No. Good grades should be enough reward.

As in pocket money from their parents? Perhaps.

I am not sure it works when the children are young, but I rather see it "be banked" into a savings account for college....

I had a horrible grade in Reading in Fourth Grade. Dad told me if I boosted it to a C, we'd get another cat. I got the C and the cat. You can call it bribery or a reward, but it was effective.

:P It worked for me. Though, it wasn't always money.
