I had trouble signing in… by the time I did, candy.daniels pretty much said what I was going to… consequences are not punishment. Even in “non-ADD” kids, punishment isn’t very effective at changing behavior. Consequences can be, once the kid sees the connection and teaching thinking skills can be fun for both the teacher and the learner. With a younger learner I would use a lot of questions. What are your options? What happens with each option? It’s not so much work if you play with it. (I’m already thinking about what I would do faced with that huge pile of spinach.)
