In the United States, our children face a number of factors that influence their behavior. Children’s peers, parents and even the media, especially television, heavily influence students. Because of these influences, it can be difficult to motivate students in the classroom to strive for and achieve success. The purpose of this article is to discuss the influential factors that affect children from middle school through college, and discuss ways to help motivate students to achieve success.
