So, I've been told a million times to tell SS when he is doing good, rather then only point out when he is being a pain. Okay. I get it. I've had a lot of experience with that age group, working in classrooms and teaching and what have you. I know the benefits of positive reinforcement and "catching them being good." What if that doesn't work? When DH or I take the time to let SS know when he is doing a great job he turns around and makes faces at us, or growls, or acts up. For example, if he is treating his little sister kindly and we say something nice about it he immediately does something mean to her. If he is sitting down doing his homework without giving us issues and we complement him he immediately gets off task and starts to act up. Do we just ignore him all the time? Seriously, this kid has been seen by a psychologist and we were told he was perfectly well adjusted. So, we don't know what his problem is. Any ideas?Answer Question
How old is he? I have three 6 & 9, both girls and 10 my ONLY (lol) boy and go through the same thing at times. IMO, if he's been seen and has adjusted well, it's probably the kids being kids syndrome lol.
