I should of thought of this !!! Just spoke with a friend. Her difficult child (8th grade) was looking for his easter basket yesterday. She said It is Not hidden. He was shoked that he couldn't see it. She then replied: When I see your homework - you'll see your Easter Basket. And beginning today I am going to start eating the candy. So the longer it takes you to finish your homework, the less you are going to get !! Her son and my son have the same issues in school. Either they don't do it and lie to us, they do it and lose it or they do it and forget to turn it in!
