Regardless of how early I get him up, he can't be ready in time to go to school. He goofs around and when asked to stop (whatever he is doing), he doesn't listen. It's not just before school it is everyday, several times a day. He has several quirky behaviors that annoy me and that prevent our family from getting things done or arriving to destinations on time. I have done everything conventional and unconventional to extinguish the behavior and/or to motivate him to be more timely/efficient, follow directions. I am at the point of sending him to military school. I am sick of discussing the issues with him and I am sick of hearing "I'm sorry, I won't do it again" to have him turn around 2 minutes later "doing it again". Help!!!!Answer Question
