I do not think for a moment that my oldest son had this much ‘tude’ as a up and coming teen.
I get the eye rolling, the not listening and now, drawing in class and not turning in homework.
Grounded for 2 weeks over a ‘failure to turn in home work’ and ‘missing and incomplete’ assignments, the youngest (who will be 13 in two short weeks). was drawing in class. Umm… now I am making him write ‘I will not draw in class’, 100 times. Then he will write a letter of apology to his Language Arts teacher for his behavior.
I know that he is testing my patience and my limits and I must stand strong and firm. However, if any one has any suggestions let me know! He is a sweet young man and I only want the best for him, both now and in the future.
All the best!
