Dinnertime Dilemma Scenarios

  • Dinnertime dilemmas are scenarios used by some PBIS schools to encourage family discussion to promote the understanding and generalization of school-wide behavior expectations. Dinnertime Dilemmas are designed to be sent home once a month with students. During the month families are asked to discuss the dilemma. It is hoped that families will talk about the dilemma, how the behavior expectation targeted relates to the situation or dilemma presented and how the behavior expectation can apply in all aspects of the child’s life (not just school). These are just tools that you have the option of using with your child if you think it might be beneficial. If you have any other questions or if you have a great idea for a scenario we can use, please feel free to contact Ms. Martino (bmartino@avonschool.com).
