So, the 5 weeks reports came out the other day and son #3 has 3 classes with averages in the 50s and 60's. We were stunned!
Come to find out, his test scores are great. He just cannot be bothered with turning in his homework. ARGHHHHHH!
It must stink being middle child at home and new kid at school, but even allowing for that, acting out by not trying one's best at school is totally unacceptable!!!
So no computer privileges or friends over or phone calls until the averages all go back up to where they're supposed to be. If he misses handing in anymore homework he won't be allowed to participate in any clubs or organizations, either.
Sometimes I think the children go out of their way to find new and different ways to drive their father and me to distraction. Good thing we love them or we would have to kill them.
