Hello to all the mothers. As a mom myself i am facing problem in teaching my daughter to concentrate & try finishing the work in the given time. She is happy to take my advice one day but the next day it's back to where we started. ....

Hey Bridget, great to know ur experiences with ur daughter. The idea of reward seems good. Shall try & implement this as well with my daughter & will surely give u my feedback. Stay safe!!!

I also share your frustration. Whether its home or school I'm already getting the huff and roll of the eyes. We have a set schedule of when homework gets done so its getting better. She doesn't disturb others in class but distracts herself. She doesn't have an attention disorder but is stubborn if she decides its not worth her time.

Other than school work she's great help around the house unless she doesn't want to do it and she tries to stall. I've now started a ticket reward system in the house. Walmart has rolls of the stuff. :-) She makes a list of rewards and we negotiate the ticket cost. Frozen ice cream shop, a craft with me, or a trip to the $1 store seems to be working. Tickets are now the currency of the household for Megan ...some are taken for misbehavior and some are rewarded. Very motivating for her.
