It's October, It's 90 degrees in FL
Dad took the girls, including the friend on a nature trail Sunday morning. Miss M did perfect with that. She was very proud that she spotted a wood pecker.
Mr. C did well too. It is not easy for him at all to deal with Big Sis having a friend over. It goes beyond the normal annoying little brother stuff. It has to do with his rigid and extreme thinking on things at times. To him because we are a family, a group when a friend comes over that friend is there to be enjoyed by everyone. Period. End of understanding and or discussion. We have worked with him on changing this understanding. His CBA is working with him on changing this understanding. What we did this time was make it worth his while. He still does not agree with it, it just isn't the way it is in his world. However, he likes the rewards. So ... we placed a reward opportunity in front of him if he earned it with respectful behavior while Big Sis had her friend over. A few reminders of "reward", and he was able to pull it off.
