At what point should one seek further treatment of repeat offenders? I’ve one student (2nd grader) who lies about his work once or twice a week. His work is passed out to him, he stuffs it into his chair pocket, and busies himself with something else. The stuffing away of the blank worksheet is something I personally witness. I give consequences,he meets with me later with the insistence he did the work but “offers to do it again”. I point out the inconsistencies and he just stares at me and insists he had done it and turned it in. This work that is at his level, so I don’t believe difficulty is the problem. I’ve given him opportunities to “find” the work he swears he turns in. I’m keeping the parents informed. As of yet, this kid still staunchly tells everyone he did the work. Consequences are being given and his “repeat work” is getting done, but it’s a headache. I’m not sure whether to or even how to kick this up to the next level, whether a counselor should get involved, or what. What would be the signs that more intervention is needed?
