This may not be something every parent wants to do, but it certainly worked well for me. You can use food very strategically as a motivator; space out the treats that you give along the way. You can set expectations and goals when you start your hike.
I would be remiss if I didn't offer a solution before this trend becomes the norm. How about at fast food restaurants you teach your child the expected behavior and then you too can enjoy the nice restaurant. This is what I see when I go out. Adults visiting, oblivious to what the child is doing until there is a big scene, then the parent is angry and threatening at the child. My other pet peeve is the child who has been condoned by ignoring to go mommy,mommy,mommy,mommy... Until mommy gets mad or gives up and answers him. Do we as adults tolerate being ignored? No, you are enforcing a horrible habit by doing that. You child needs to know that you care about their needs. So if you are speaking to another adult, stop yourself and tell the child, I am speaking to so and so right now. It is rude to interrupt. I will see what you want when I am through. Now don't wait the entire conversation. Finish the thought with the adult and the answer the child. The child will learn that is expected behavior for both of you.
While private schools for gifted children usually have a reputation for being expensive, that's not always the case. Many of these educational institutions are more affordable than parents initially think and some even report that a majority of the students receive some sort of financial aid.
