I'm thinking about requiring weekly homework from my life skills kiddos in the fall. But I'm thinking that some of them will not be good at returning it. I'm really good with reward systems - - but not so much with consequences. (In fact, I try to avoid them with my multiple reward systems! ) What consequences do you guys give for un-returned items sent home? Last year I had two kiddos that didn't return their parent/teacher notebooks. After unsuccessful second tries, I gave up and just didn't sent notes home. :unsure: Both students had uninvolved parents - very difficult to pin down. Which brings me to my second question. How do you work with uninvolved parents? Do you call them? How long do you have to get the cold shoulder before you give up? Is giving up wrong? Okay I guess that was more than two questions.
