    How do you work with a procrastinating child?

    I have one child who will not do things until the last minute or it is to late. Whether it is getting up for school, getting homework done, getting ready to go somewhere, or doing chores. This child will not just get up and get things done.
    Taking away all electronics, sitting on a chair for a period of time, grounding, none of these things have phased him to do better.

    Instead of taking things away from him when he doesn't do as you ask/expect, have you tried rewarding him for more acceptable behaviour? Positive reinforcement is a greater motivator than negative consequences. I know I would sooner do things if I was going to have a reward at the end of it. It is not much different than having a job - if you do your job well, you get paid. If you don't, you get fired. Which would you rather have?
