We’re seeing some improvement in the homework situation

I have to share that Gavin seems to be doing better with homework.  Most of this stuff isn’t actually homework, per say. It’s schoolwork that if not completed in school, must be done at home.

So far, Gavin doesn’t seem to be hiding homework from us, at least that we know of.  He’s even been completing his classwork at school, in the time allotted.

Look, I’m not an idiot and I know Gavin all too well.  I fully realize that this change is likely the result of him knowing he can’t manipulate anyone anymore, at least not as easily.  Having said that, I’ve given up on Gavin doing the right thing because it’s the right thing to do. That’s not a concept I expect that he will ever grasp. 

At the end of the day though, he’s doing what he needs to do and that certainly progress in my book. We’re taking a positive feedback approach once again to see if it will work this time. 

Either way, his work is getting done and the tension has dissipated.  That doesn’t mean I trust him because I don’t think that will ever really happen and those of you out there with RAD kids know and understand what I’m talking about.

my two cents again. Tell them no homework too much stress. if he doesnt get it dont at school tell them not to send it home. that way they can figure out why it is not done. you are not there and they are. they have to figure it out. and remember i believe in cameras and microphones. you are not going ot know what is going on unless you do this. i would get it “approved” then set it up as a “class camera” so gavin doesnt feel like he is being watched but you will be able to tell in a week what is going on.
