I am planning my DD's 3rd WDW trip this year and am always looking for ways for her to earn her Disney Dollars...usually through chores. Well, the past few weeks have been rough ones. She has been having a hard time at school, calls from the teachers, flipping cards and coming home with yellow and red ones, culminating with a call from her teacher with some "concerns" she wanted to discuss with me. Well my 8 yo DD has always been very high energy, very talkative, 3rd year competitive allstar cheerleader, (a sport that made sense with all her energy)...and comments from teachers on report cards each year have always been the same...excessive talking, disrupts the class with talking, etc. Academically she has always been on schedule and average/above average. Well, her lack of focus, and easily distracted-ness have become a concern and her grades have drasticlly dropped the past 2 months. I took her to see her pediatrician, who both her and I trust 100%. After, the questionaires were filled out by both the teacher and I, same results and DD is displaying core symptoms of ADHD. I have decided to go full force with behavior modification before considering meds. So, I have implemented Disney Dollars as her daily reward for staying on task with whatever her task may be. Last week it was "not shouting out in class and raising her hand". She had a great week and earned $1 (Disney) each day. Of course, if she gets really motivated by this, I could go broke before our trip, but I guess its worth it...right?! She seems to respond very well to immediate feedback. Is is wrong to reward her for behavior that is expected? Or is this an exception to that rule? This thread may even be in the wrong forum, so I understand if it needs to be moved. Thanks in advance.
