Ann I 'spect you have been praying bec he is doing a lot better

Susan I think she's going to have to set up her own cause/effect program. It will take time, and persistence.

Ann I did read the sites except the one that required paid subscription. His problem is not with academic learning but behavioral learning i.e. learning the consequences of the ways he acts or chooses not to act. It is that natural cause and effect link for discipline that his mom finds most difficult to help him understand.

Susan There are some ideas for teaching children that in those links. One of the suggestions for kids who are video prone is that so many of the games actually show the relationship between cause and effect. In fact, using natural cause and effect consequences is a great way to discipline.

Ann This child learns school subjects well the problem he has is in areas like throw your toys on the floor and refuse to pick them up --> toys gone, scream at mom ---> discipline, refuse to go to bed --> tired. Kicking screaming hitting are counter productive

Ann Thanks

His mom thinks perhaps he has some borderline or Autism or Aspergers. I have not had opportunity to see him and know if it is that or some ADHA, ADD related manifestations turbulent surroundings. He is very smart, does well at school, but seems to follow directions only when there are other kids other than brother) to follow, be intensely into video games and whatever else he is into, and not be willing or able to link actions and consequences.

Susan I don't know of any, but I'll see what I can find.

video games for learning

Does anyone know of learning video games that can teach a child cause and effect type things and maybe some behavioral patterns? This is for a very bright 8 yr old who has some behavioral issues (may be autism related) who is totally into action video games. His mom and I would appreciate any info.
