for getting difficult child back on schedule? He stays up later and later and sleeps later and later and doesn't care, much less make any effort to change it. If you recall, he only went to school about one day a week the last few weeks before holiday break. It appears to me that not only is this interfering with any move toward becoming more stable, but he won't be anywhere prepared to go to school Monday morning. So, this is a Basket B, if not basket A item for me. I wake him up in the moornings to give him his medications, so at least they stay on schedule. He raises up, takes them, then goes right back to sleep. He rants and raves if I try to talk to him about getting out of bed and will pick something up and throw it if I try to pull covers off or actually do anything. He really doesn't have anything I can take at this point to punish him with. I can't physically make him get in bed at night. Rewards aren't even working right now because 1) he's not acting like he wants anything, 2) we have no money and his b-day is in 2 weeks, 3) he's gotten to a point where if I dangle a carrot, he makes issue if he doesn't get it from me, whether he really did everything he should or not. So, how do you work with a kid using Basket B appraoches, if the kid sees it as a Basket C item?
