mari2mila Posted February 9, 2012 Share Posted February 9, 2012 My daughter has a very difficult time with behavior in school. She is 6 1/2, sweet, smart, and a huge ball of fire! The problem is, her behavior is much different at school than it was at home. She was diagnosed with combined-type ADHD and ODD last year. I've done a lot on my end to change my behavior and reactions, and be more consistent at home, and I have very few issues with her behavior at home and out in public with me now. At school is another story all together. She's locked the sub out of the classroom, climbed up on her desk to grab something out of the teacher's hand, stolen, ran away, hid, refused to go with the class, ripped up class work, thrown away homework and behavior sheets, said mean things to others, etc. The list is pretty long. My question is, what can I do to get her to change her behavior in school? She's been earning rewards at home (pokemon cards, squinkies, and $.10 for each happy face on her daily sheet, as well as doing her reading time and completing her math/spelling. But, what else can I do to change her behavior in school? I've had many emails go back and forth with the teacher, but it's always like a venting session for her. Nothing ever changes. Conferences are the same way. We spend the whole time discussing behavior, rather than academics. I've also email the principal, and am awaiting a response. (just requested that we begin some sort of dialogue about this). What are your experiences? What's worked for you? I really want her to do well in school and be liked by the kids and teachers. But, I have a feeling that a big part of her success is going to be based on what I do for her, and not the school. Thanks in advance. Link to comment
