Reward Systems?

My eight year old son has been very reluctant to do his homework lately. I think he is getting to the age when he is pushing boundaries but I really want to encourage him to do it rather than punish him for not doing it. Do any of you ladies have a positive reward system that you could suggest that might work for a stubborn little boy? :)

    I usually use supportive words while he is doing homework, my son is lazy by nature so I always bring his backpack to him but I'm trying to be as positive as possible.

    Replace monetary and external rewards with encouraging verbal responses. End the practice of paying for grades and going on a special trip for ice cream. This style of bribery has only short term gains and does little to encourage children to develop a lifetime love of learning.

    Instead make positive verbal comments that concentrate on describing the behavior you wish to encourage. It works much better!
