My son is currently in the 4th grade. At the beginning of the school year, we implemented the "ABC's of Effective Homework Management" and as expected, our son has been slacking on his homework as well as classwork. His teacher has also pulled me aside to tell me that he will have meltdowns in class if something doesn't go his way (he can't find something, his teacher tells him that he needs to redo a problem, etc). This has been an ongoing problem at home and school for many years.
So, I am now wondering how to go about implementing the ideas discussed in Rosemond's book the Fail-Safe Formula for Helping Your Child Succeed in School. I was thinking about using the Daily Report Card for both the meltdown problem and the incomplete work problem or should I tackle one of these problems first.
