So I am an inconsistant punisher! I am working on it though but I am having a few issues. So my 8 y/o who has ADHA has been acting out in school and got in trouble and I decided to punish her. But when I punish I usually go back on the punishment because I feel soooo bad for her. She has ADHD and a lot of her behavior is dealing with impulse which I feel she can't control. I look at it like this, what kid WANTS to get in trouble? She is a straight A student. So I have a problem with punishing her because of her ADHD and feel she can't control it. She isn't on meds so I do a lot trying to figure out her triggers. Am I being too lenient? Anyone have any punishment suggestions?
