What to do when Your Child Doesn’t Want to do School Work

    I found #15 “I know you’re tired, let’s come back to this later”, to be very eye opening. My oldest has ADHD and ODD and I try to push through to try to get the work for the day complete. My mindset is the faster we get it done, the faster you can get to free-time. Something that was told to me time and time again as a child. However, repeatedly I am banging my head on a wall with this method with her and I think it’s because I am not focusing on this important step. Taking breaks is essential when working with ADHD kids, but I always still want to try to push and get one more page done or one last chapter finished while it seems like she’s on a roll. I have to remind myself…#15, #15! lol

    1. Good words! My 13 yr old with Asperger’s & ADHD told me she was fading fast. I wanted her to do something and sometimes it’s so hard to tell the diff between her just not wanting to do something or tired or something else. She said she wanted a nap & I gave in; 2 min later she was asleep! I guess she was fading fast!
