What I mean by that is that every child should have some kind of thing (currency) that's negotiable to encourage good behavior.
Clean your room or lose your IPOD
do your homework or no TV
take turns or the Xbox is going away
What do you do for discipline when a child has no "currency" ? I've suffered in silence with this problem for awhile but my sons teacher in a meeting last week told me that she tries to negotiate (threaten) him with losing gym and he doesn't care, even though she knows how much he LOVES gym. She asked him why one day and he responded "your school has a big gym, my mom bought me nice gym shoes. I know I'll be back in there eventually". Exact response I get from him at home..... is it spankin' time now?
