bow down

Hi! I have a question, and need some advice.

Does anyone else have a kid that just DOESNT WANT TO DO ANYTHING?!?! He fights and screams and just hates learning anything. He doesn't function in a large group-which is why we decided on HS. He loves ABC mouse, but will not TRY!!! I started him at the beginning and he acts like he knows nothing.

 

what are some ideas i can try to get him engaged? make him a little more anxious to get his work done and not fight me so hard? incentives? rewards?

 

thanks ladies :)

I would love be to see this.


Quoting almondpigeon:

I had this problem a few weeks ago. We implemented a punch card system. (I think the idea came from this group, actually). If he shows effort and good attitude, he gets a punch for that subject. Punches earn little rewards. It has really worked for us. When I get back to my computer, I will send you the link.
