Motivation

My younger son, Dallin, is in sixth grade this year.  A few weeks ago he attended an information meeting about student council.  I was surprised.  I didn’t think that was something he was interested in.  He wanted to apply for position of “Gator,” school mascot.  He would get to dress up in the gator costume during Friday recognition days and other school events.  This is an elected position.  I was again surprised.  There were application forms that needed to be filled out and turned in by a certain deadline.  Dallin is not the most diligent in turning in his work.  Example:  He loves to read and does considerably more reading than required but rarely turns in his reading log.  

On Tuesday, when I met him after school to ride bikes back to the gym I could tell he was upset.  I assumed they had elections and he didn’t win.  When I inquired as to why he was upset he told me he had turned in the application written in pencil.  The directions were that it had to be done in pen.  His application was not accepted and the deadline had passed.  Conflicting emotions arose.  What an arbitrary rule to disqualify a sixth grader.  On the other side, I have been warning and working with Dallin about the importance of following the rules.  Not being able to follow rules can cost you and create disappointment.  

A big part of me wanted to intervene on his behalf.  The part of me concerned with his future told me it was a tough lesson he needed to learn.  Dallin really wanted that position and I think he would have done a great job at it.  This will hopefully sting for a very long time.  I hope this is a lesson that gets him to pay attention to the details and make sure he does the little things correctly.
