My 7 yr. old dd has to sit at a separate desk away from the rest of the class almost every day. She gets out of her chair to talk with friends before her work is done. Sometimes she has to go to the office for being too disruptive and not listening to the teacher. I have tried grounding her from toys, tv, computer, and grounding her to her room for these incidents. My dh and I have lectured her about respect and her behavior. We have tried to ask her what she did wrong and asked what she should have done differently. She always knows what she did was wrong before she made the choice, but it seems whatever I do, she doesn't seem to care. What else can I do to get her to change her attitude/behavior?

My daughter was academically advanced and had behavior issues in elementary school. As time went on it became obvious that nothing we or her teachers tried was helping, and eventually she also fell behind. In later grades she had a hard time getting her work done and turned in. We were convinced we just hadn't found the right discipline technique. Last year at age 12 we finally decided to do ADHD testing, and within a very short time of starting medication she was a completely different kid. We also took a Love & Logic parenting class and found that very helpful. GL!
