Back Talk and Disrespect

"....but everyone at school back talks"! says John at our family meeting. Back Talk and disrespect was our main issue at this weeks family meeting. It's getting out of hand in our house....the back talk....with pointers from the book entitled "Positive Discipline" we spoke about the issue and talked about how to approach it.

John doesn't understand why everyone at school does it and wants me to talk to his teacher, so we can get everyone to stop....oh, if it was that easy....!

If anyone is interested in Jane Nelsen et al. (Positive Discilpine: A-Z) solutions to this issue, I "cut and paste" their comments above.

Sensory Processing Disorder (SPD)

Sensory processing disorder (SPD) is a neurodevelopmental disorder that affects at least one in twenty children. Children with SPD don't process or experience sensory information the way other typical children do; therfore, they don't behave the way other children do. They struggle to perform tasks that come easier for other children. Consequently they suffer a loss of quality in their social, personal, emotional and academic life.

The Sensory Processing Disorder Foundation is dedicated to continue their research into the knowledge and treatment of SPD, so that, as Lucy Jane Miller writes in her book "Sensations Kids", "the millions of sensational children currently "muddling through" daily life will enjoy the same hope and help that research and recognition already have bestowed on coutless other conditions that once baffled science and disrupted lives."
