Gentlygenli I couldn’t disagree with you more. I’m sorry…do you have a child that has ADHD? I have had a constant struggle with my child that has ADHD and learning disabilities and I too tried to parent like you and it didn’t work which made me more frustrated. Children aren’t robots and they all don’t learn in the same way. Nor do they have the ability to learn in the same way. It is a fact that a child’s disibility can hinder their behavior. I’m assuming by your comments that you don’t have a child that has been classified. Its extremely ignorant assumptions. Perhaps you may want to educate yourself. My stepson has ODD and until I educated myself I thought the same way as yourself. That negative approach and response doesn’t work.
