I haven't posted in a while but I am back with a question none of my friends have much experience with, and neither do I though I work with people doing physical rehab, this is a little out of my league. My 12 year old DD has a really hard time remembering pretty basic things, something I had hoped she would grow out of when she got a little more mature, but no such luck. She is almost 13 and starting 7th grade at a new school, with a lot of new things to learn, so this year will be a tough one for everyone involved, lol. The main issue is her phone. The agreement was that she would always know where her phone is and keep it charged, and she is not holding up her end of the bargain, as I figured would happen, hence the hesitation to get her one in the first place. But now, we are under contract and I want her to have a phone to keep in touch with friends. She has left her phone in people's cars at least a dozen times and rarely remembers to take it with her or charge it. Like I said, we are under contract through January, so I would like to treat the next few months as a "probationary period" to decide whether or not she gets to keep it.
Does anyone know of any games or apps that might help a child her age? She is a little old for "Memory" but something like that might work. I have tried the thing where you give them three words to remember and then ask them what they are an hour later, but she hasn't done too well and is more of a visual learner, so something with pictures might be better.
I don't know, I have already accepted the fact that she will lose every jacket we buy her, but the phone is a tough one. I thought not having a phone would be incentive enough to keep track of it but I think she needs a little more help. Thanks!
