Hi there, I was wondering what the norm, if any, is about giving gifts/rewards to jr cert child on results day? We plan to have a nice dinner out at the weekend but that was about it. Do parents give money or gifts also? Thanks, Lisa.

Depends on the effort put in I suppose. If the child worked hard, regardless of the result, then in this day and age, the meal and perhaps a little gift of their choice would be appropriate. Wouldn´t go over the top though.

Wouldn´t go overboard at all as children have to learn that money is not as free as it was.

Thanks :-) Just wasnt sure what parents normally do. I mean is usual to do anything at all? We´re going to i.e. meal but I wondered what is the norm. Grannys and couple neighbours have given him cards and a bit of cash. My son did do very well and he did really work hard!

In that case give him something he would really like but don´t go over a E100- that would be my advice anyway.
