Excuse me, what is wrong with monetary reward?

Personally, I don't like either inflicting punishment on bad behavior or bestowing external reward for good behavior, because I think motivation for behavior should come solely from within.

But it seems that many Chinese love to punish people, so if punishing is okay, what is wrong with giving money for reward?

There is a point when an individual has to learn to be self motivated.
If money is the sole motivation for a person to do anything, they will end up one mercenary individual, generosity and hospitality would be dead, along with any other virtue you can probably think of.

To be honest, your original comment about a father sending 100 RMB to his son's teacher sounds a bit like bribery.

A university student who is not self-motivated enough to do the work in his own will probably fail in life without his father's help.
