Do you find it more difficult to discipline your special needs child? Do you do things different with him/her than you do with your other kids (if you have other kids)?

Visit us at the Am I Pregnant board.

We have different expectations for each of our kids, based on their abilities. I don't necessarily find it harder to discipline one or the other, but it is someimes tough trying to explain that to the kids!

I can remember Kayla getting angry because Brandon had almost all C's on his report card. We were thrilled and she was upset that he didn't get grounded! Those are the times that discipline becomes complicated for us.

Yes. There are just things a child with severe mental disabilities can't yet understand. But we do expect things that are developmentally appropriate. At first my daughter seemed to get upset, but we talked about all the priviledges she gets along with her responsibilities. You can't treat your children all the same because they aren't the same.
