Question. How far have you all gone to get the behaviors that you need? I need him to stop hitting me and kicking me. His most natural response to most requests or comments that I have is to come to me and hit me or act like he is about to. He has a psychiatrist, a counselor, medications., been on behavior plans. I haven't called the police yet. I want to take care of it on my own. But we are getting to that point... where do I draw the line? so... have you paid off your kid to not hit you? We paid off on the last behavioral contract. So many minutes with-o hitting, swearing, calling me names (45 mins) got him a sticker. Ten stickers earned him a dollar. So many problems arise. Once he gets the money he must go to the store immediately. It takes days to earn enough stickers. If he is mad he won't care, he hits anyway. I am at the point of giving him an amount of money, for only one rule followed. Don't hit/kick. Seems rediculous but money is his incentive. grrr. Amazing how helpless you feel with no control over your 11 year old and a ten year old watching every move.
