Make a chart or table to keep track of your practices. While I recommend a journal of some sort to keep track of teaching points, I also recommend some sort of visible reward to show consistency in practice. Check off your day's practice on the chart as you put your violin away. You get a feeling of accomplishment when you can see that you haven't missed a day's practice for two, three or four weeks.

And praise your student when he achieves those goals of two or three weeks without a miss!
This is a great practice reminder.  A refrigerator magnet that frowns before practice, but turns into a smile when your student turns it around after his practice and proclaims "Practice Done."  Click either picture to have a look.
