Default My son has been lying, and cheating in school... CREATIVE PUNISHMENTS???

So my son has been lying to me recently.. over little stuff.. He also got caught cheating on a spelling test last week in school.. He is 8 years old, third grade and he is very intelligent. Im not just saying that either. He has been tested and is waaaay above his level. He just doesnt care. He has no fear, no shame and is severely lacking in respect.... Ive tried lots of stuff and as you know, you cant beat their asses like our parents did... I was thinking about making him wear a sign at the local QT where I live and making him wear it while he opens the doors for everybody and greets them. Any suggestions? What would you do? Im being serious so keep your comments somewhat so....Im not going to beat on him but I have to find something that will make him think before he acts....

in all seriousness... my brother is in the 6th grade, and he too took a skills test and was way beyond anybody else in his grade. He then got accepted to a school with "higher standards" or something like that... what if your son was in a different school with stricter standards/rules?

in his old school he was not challenged, and would slack off and get bad grades, basically wouldn't care. since he moved schools he has shown interest in learning, chooses to go to school when he has the option to stay home sick, and is flooded with challenges. He's currently learning spanish and mandarin at the same time, getting A's in both.

kind of a weird concept, but whatever.

I had this problem as a kid. He needs to be challenged more at school. More advanced classes.




For punishment make him clean up trash on the side of the road for a few hours.

Why not? No one said to beat your child, but I have to assume your parents popped you for discipline. Poor America....

Don't humiliate him. That won't help.

Take away his favorite toys or activities. Let him know exactly why it's happening. Tell him what he needs to do/how he needs to behave to get them back. Let him know lying and cheating will get you nowhere in life (unless you're a lawyer or insurance salesman).

Embarass the hell out of him at school. Have mommy get out and give her little man a big ol kiss before and after school, either at school or the bus stop.

Maybe even request to shadow him for a day?

Yea, my parents beat my ***... I was scared to do something wrong.. Now, I did do dumb **** from time to time but this crap is getting ridiculous. I was thinking about making him run after school... just a mile or two... he has already lost his phone, PS3, TV, games... He sits at the table and reads and does homework after school.. stays in his room the whole day and lights out at 7pm... Im liking the idea of him picking up trash for a couple of miles... Any other thoughts?

You also need to remember, when you take everything from him there leaves nothing to bargain with. If taking his stuff doesnt work, its time to look into something else. Believe me I know this. I am a single dad raising 2 of my own kids plus my ex's 2 kids. Man its a HARD job but sometimes you have to get creative. I have found that encouragement to do whats right goes alot further than discipline in some cases.
But I am not above whipping a kid.

I was told to let poor behavior pass and to focus more on rewarding positive behavior... I did that for 6 months... It seems he does good for a while and then all hell breaks loose... I give my son considerable attention... we work in the garage, go get ice cream, just the two of us, and play basketball, study or whatever comes to mind... I help him with school work, I go to nearly all of his school functions, I talk with his teachers regularly and I am on a first name basis with his principal...

If taking away his toys/fun activites is not working to keep him in check, try the reverse. Start rewarding him when he has good behavior.

As a kid I wasn't challenged and started ******* around in school and ended up not giving a ****. I barely passed high school.

You could try to get something out of it. Make him do a chore you hate doing yourself. My dad made me clean the garage when I was about 12 and I hated it. It wasnt a punishment, but it was "a disaster area and needed to be organized" as my mom put it. It would have been an extremely effective punishment seeing as it took about 30 hours over 4 days to get it from disaster to messy.

Alternatively, you could make him learn a skill like cooking. It will come in handy when hes older, but he will not enjoy it now.

Heres my insight into the mind of your son using my experience:
I am very "smart" in school, which means I am good at test taking and presentations. I am always getting A's with minimal effort and no studying, even in college. It makes it difficult to care about what you do, and everyone has high expectations of you. I could see how that pressure could make him feel like he needed to cheat if he didnt know how to spell a word on his test.

sorry for the long post.
