He had complained about taking the medication in elementary school (“it takes away my funny”), but now, squarely in adolescence, he decided he was “finished with meds,” that he hated them and the way they made him feel (“like an automaton”). His parents agreed, but said that if his grades began to fall, they would insist he take medication again. They backed him up with tutors, many tutors, and an especially strong one for math. Ellen also asked the tutors to work with Nate on study skills and project management in addition to subject content, because he would no longer accept this kind of help from his mother!

Punishment and resulting negative consequences did nothing to improve the situation, so Ellen and Ron, in the spirit of “we need to help this boy just get through high school,” decided to become more proactive and more positive in their approach to helping Nate. When he left homework (or his viola or soccer gear) at home, they took turns getting things to school; at home, they worked together on problem‐solving strategies with Nate, rather than letting him struggle and fail. They wanted Nate to feel that they were all on the same side of the table, solving problems together rather than being adversaries.
