Strong Willed

Dona - posted on 01/14/2012 ( 2 moms have responded )




My seven year old is very strong willed and stays in trouble with his conduct. I have tried everything I can think of but nothinbg works. Everything is a battle and he continually tries to negotiate all the way down to simple things like brushing his teeth and taking a bath. He is a straight A student except for conduct and I am looking for something that works without breaking his spirit.

have you tried, counseling or play therapy to teach him how to better interact with others. Some children who are very smart have a really hard time with that. Also maybe talk to his teacher about modifying his school program so that there is some challenge in his work so that he is not getting bored and getting into trouble in class.
