I have been having problems with my son. apparently at school he won't listen to the teacher. Today she sounded like she was going to cry and told me "I just don't know what to do with him" We have tried giving treats for good behavior and rewards. We tried "if you do good I will be happy but if you do bad I will be sad do you want me to be happy?' The teacher put up a Green, Yellow, Red chart and if the child is in the red they didn't do well that day and green is good ect. PROBLEM! My son LOVES the Power Rangers and his favorite one is the RED RANGER.....so of course he will TRY to be in RED because of that reason. "I'm RED mommy!!" Today I finally decided to try what my grandparents did to me when I was little if I was bad then my grandfather pulled down the paddle and spanked me. If I was good I got to watch TV and get treats ect. If it worked for me it is worth a try on my son right? Really I have tried everything else I can think of. I tried a sticker chart, letting him pick where he wants a treat from, assigning a specific treat or goal treat for at the end of the week. What else could I try? Really I am so stressed and going to school myself, about to start a new job I am so tired that I got home and cried just from stress and frustration.Answer Question
