We've been in survival mode for so long, I know we're late in getting our son to do household chores. I figured you all would understand. While medication helps tremendously when it's active, it's the time when he's home and it's not active that can be so difficult. For this reason, we just haven't had luck implementing chores. We tried charts and simple tasks for a while, but they fell by the wayside when faced with behavior difficulties at home.
Can anyone suggest some realistic chores for a seven year old that could potentially be done while he's at his worst? For instance, taking garbage out is a no because he'd just throw the full bag around the kitchen and make a mess in the morning. I would love to hear what has worked for other parents.
