I pay my son to brush his teeth Edit in black

Posted by   + Show Post

Brushing teeth, changing clothes, showering, making healthy choices, doing chores, all of these were battles that me and ds fought on a daily basis.

I'm stressed out, he's stressed out, I don't know what to do. The a light bulb went off!lightbulbHe loves money. *Think Mr Crabs* So we started giving him a point on a chart every time he does the above. Each point is worth 2 cents. Like magic my son is now changing his underwear without being asked and brushing this teeth twice a day. It is sooo worth the 10 cents a day,lol.

Forgot to add something important. My son is 8 and has SPD Sensory Processing Disorder. He finds a lot of things we don't notice VERY uncomfortable. The feel of a tooth brush in his mouth, new washed clothes on his body, the textures of many, many foods, and so many other things. Money is something he enjoys so it helps motivate him to do things he finds unpleasant.

Since you made such a big deal about whether or not everyone knew about her sons autism, which I didn't when I stated my opinion, I would just like to point out that she added on that it was her son after several pages of negative responses. Then, on page 13, she admits that she also does it for her daughter and states that " it is not all about special needs in this family." So, she pays all of her children to do what they should be doing anyway. She is the one you should call a backpeddler.


Quoting Mom2KIL:

I'm not trying to backpedal. I don't think that my response was nasty. I disagree with paying kids for doing things that they should already be doing (kids w/o an issue) but from the two post that I have read of hers, it doesn't surprise me that she would. I can disagree with someone. Those two post were like throwing gasoline on a fire, waiting for someone to light a match, and then saying " we'll, I didn't know it was going to catch on fire." She knew they would be controversial when she posted them. I respect your right to your opinion and I hate you think I was being rude, but I don't have to defend my opinion to you. It wasn't even your post. Goodbye!




Quoting Debmomto2girls:

So, why get nasty with someone whom you only know from 2 posts and than continue to say how she is attention seeking, erc from 2 posts?? Nice backpedal





Quoting Mom2KIL:

Exactly. That is what I said. If I would've known I would've added that for a child without his condition I feel this way, but since I don't have one with that particular issue, then good for him. She obviously post a lot of crap on here and is flattered to think that everyone is going to remember everything about this or that. I went back and read your comment and you weren't even sure about it being the same child. My point is why not just include it from the very beginning... Because she wanted this exact thing to happen. I remember those other two post because of her SN and how much I disagreed with her but I didn't even bother with a reply.








Quoting Debmomto2girls:

This is what you said about her. You only come




On 2x a week but you remember this and not her multiple posts about her son and homeschooling???










Quoting Mom2KIL:

Well, for someone who has to buy their kids Christmas candy for their stocking with their foodstamps or sends their daughter to church for a break (these were some of your previous post) it doesn't surprise me that this would be your parenting style. I'm sure it will work out great! *eyeroll*

If it works congradulatins. It's a shame they can't find a way of controlling his sx's to make his life easier. What happens when he's an adult and there is no one to pay him?

By the time he's an adult I'm sure he'll have figured out that good hygiene is important for it's own sake,lol.
