    Punishments will commence!!!

    I just got an email from my wife. Her aunt saw our daughter walking in the rain 20 mins late for school.
    My wife dropped her off early that morning. The night before our daughter told her that she and her friends were going to a local store to hang out before school - after being dropped off. My wife flipped and told her to never do that again. Of course she had every excuse as to why she was able to do it. And her friends are doing it. So instead of saying, "Yes ma'am," and not doing it. She said, "Yes ma'am," and went and did it anyway. In the rain.

    hehe...close enough. That's about when my son lost his mind. My daughter is 13 now and while she certainly pushes the limits in terms of being a smart-ass, so far she hasn't gotten into the whole "tell you what you want to hear then do what I want anyway" deal.

    She lives on the other side of things and thinks she can get away with more at school - because the teachers like her and she's popular.

    I had my @55 handed to me because I was different and skinny.

    I'm not falling for this crap. We get too many phone calls, too many kids coming over, teachers letting her get away with stuff all the time. I'm tired of it. This year has been a mess.

    Her grades aren't suffering. But that's a puzzle in itself. She never has homework. But her benchmarks are good and she's making 105% in science and a 95% in math. WTF. I studied my rear off and failed.

    Something else is going on.

    Oh and her new boy friend is one step away from juvie.

    School may not be much of a challenge for her. As I recall, homework was easily dispatched before I got home.

    Still doesn't mean that something else isn't going on

    When she was in private school she was definately challenged - and so were we. She's doing stuff now that she did two years ago.

    But it's the whole "going through the changes trying to find yourself thing" that's challenging us now.

    See if the public school won't bump her up a grade, not that it would be any more challenging.

    might I suggest music or other extra activity to channel her need for a challenge? I was able to get through most of my homework quickly and easily in school too and I hadn't had the head start she had with the private school. No challenge = boredom = trouble.

    Mine is 22 now. No dating allowed until 16. 12 is waaaaay too young to be having a boyfriend IMO. Hopefully you won't become a grandfather prematurely.
    The search for inner peace continues...

    Don't cave. What we need are more parents on the ball! Sounds easy for people like me (no kids) to say you need to do this and should do that but you know what's best

    I do not approve at all. Trust me. But her mother doesn't see anything wrong with it. The kid is a doofus. He gets in trouble all the time. My wife thinks it's a phase. I think my daughter is attracted to these types of guys. This is coming up tonight too.

    oops gotta go. we are getting ready to talk with her. more later

    About the homework, I have MSIP, which would be study hall in America, which is a hour to do your homework, so you don't have to do it at home/not do so much at home.

    No. Maybe I'm being to hard on him. I don't know him enough to judge him - except that he likes my daughter and I've heard he got in to some trouble. So I want to rip him apart for even looking at her.
