Met with a mom today who has a 9 year old boy who repeatedly needed to be called to the school table for homeschooling. I had the mom do something different then yelling. For every minute he didn’t come to the table or fussed at the table, the same amount of minutes was taken off of his leisure time activity. He likes gaming on the computer, so since he made his mom wait 20 minutes to come to the work table, while she had to keep reminding him, he lost 20 minutes of his time on his gaming. The exciting news is that today his mom reports he came to the table without needing a 2nd attempt to call him!
