Ds is in grade prep and we started a reward chart at home. If he's had a day with no incidence (he has issues with pushing others, hitting and being too hands on), then he'll get a star at home. The only thing is,everyday there seems to be an incident. I'm about to see a GP about whether or not there is something else wrong because he is very impulsive and has trouble joining in play appropriately.
The problem with the reward chart is (maybe), if something happens at school in the morning, then he'll know he's not going to get a star at home, therefore this might make him more anxious, therefore play up more. What do you think?
Reasons I'm thinking this is because as soon as I picked him up today and spoke to his teacher he said to me "No star today".
Do you think I should ask the teacher to tell me/give me a brief list of the positives, eg: shared with Tom, quiet at group time, packed up rubbish etc and I'll give him a star at home to reward him for those things. If there was an incident or incidents then we can talk about why it was wrong etc, but still get a star for the good things??
I'm a little confused.
