"D"............that's what came home on Miss T's interim report card for "not turning in spelling/writing work".
This is the first year she's ever had anything less than a "B" on her report card. "C" in Math and in Social Studies.
Needless to say she's in deep dooo dooo.
No computer/webkins time;
No friends over etc.
Tom said I was being harsh if I didn't let her go to the birthday party this Saturday (of a dance friend)....after all, the friend is requesting her to attend.
OK Fine she can go, but nothing else.
She called me today to say she knew she had done the work and she had found it in her notebook.....now can I watch TV?
Not until the teacher tells me you have improved.
Gotta stick to my guns on this one.
Miss T tried blaming it on "the situation at home".
Now, that is NOT normally the way she would talk.
Yes, maybe our conflicts have affected her, but she is rule oriented and would not have NOT done the work....just not turned it in, said it was because the teacher didn't "ask" for it.
I told her that you have to be responsible and turn it in yourself in case the teacher doesn't ask for it.....that way you're sure.
I think there is an underlying issue. Because of her choice of words. I think the words were "given" to her as what to say is wrong.
Anyone ever been manipulated? Or felt like it was happening to you?
I have. I just can't explain it in this journal. Not yet.
