      The best punishment I have ever seen for throwing rice in the cafeteria:
      The teacher bought a 5lb bag of uncooked rice. Each of the two boys had to arrange the rice in large spirals on the floor. Each tier of the spiral had to be exactly 3/8" from the previous spiral, and the full spiral was 8 feet square. It took them about 6 hours after school, for 3 days! The teacher even measured and made them start over a couple of times!
      Now THAT is a punishment! The worst school punishment I had heard of before now was My mother had to write the Declaration of Independance every day after school for 6 weeks. (then my grandfather found out what was going on and put a stop to it.)
      Her crime, she laughed when a teacher slipped on a banana peel in the school auditorium. The teacher tried to make her tell who put the banana peel in the floor and she refused.
      Courage is just fear that has said it's prayers.

That stuff is a weight loss and sleeping drug along with being used for ADHD. I had my dr. change him to Concerta and when I could get him to swollow it instead of spitting it at me it worked.
          I know another kid that sounds like your daughter and they put him on a mild sleeping pill for the day time as well as a heavier one for night time and it seems to be helping according to his counslers. Not sure I like the idea of it though. Too much druging going on in his case.
          Adderol was the second drug we tried last summer.. it was worse than the ADHD.. she was getting depressed, moody and yes, constantly sleepy... only took it 2 and a half weeks and thought... this is crazy! We have to change this...We have been on Concerta ever since, but are on 36mg of it.
          Don't worry that it's not good enough for anyone else to hear... just sing, sing a song.sigpic

            Let me know how it goes. Have you talked about trying other drugs? Summer would be a good time to do a drug change while she's not in school. You could also see what the internet says about drugs avalible for ADHD and what possible side effects each one may have.

I have watched 5 of my players get into fights during the box season this year. None of them can fight their way out of a paper bag. My problem is that for the most part, they are...
