Hello all! I am new here and wonder if anyone could share their experience and perhaps success stories about how they stopped their child from ripping class work assignments. My son almost 9 years has a one on one aide..very bright, can do the work, however when his work is not perfect the way he intends it to be or he just doesn't feel like doing it; he will rip it up. Reward systems, etc..will sometimes work, and even telling him he will redo the work helps some of the time..but he still rips many assignments throughout the day. We are having an independant psychiatric evaluation done, and at the end of the month we will visit a psychiatrist who will hopefully prescribe the smallest bit of medication to take the edge off. This is very frustrating as this is a smart child with alot of frustration, anxiety, need for perfection, and obstinance! Thanks for your help!
