Why is it that inevitibly on the day you have a conference with your child’s teacher they earn a bad behavior report? This is only worsened by the fact that it is his second in a row in what is turning out to be a possible record breaking number of bad behavior reports. I mean I’m going to give T.Puzzle credit. At least he is consistent and obviously committed to racking up a high number of these reports.
His teachers aren’t completely throwing him under the bus. They say things like, “well, he’s a good kid, he’s just not listening,” or “when he’s in a group he gets in trouble but on his own he is great.” I don’t know if I buy it. I kind of do but I’m telling you, his dimples and glasses let that kid get away with more than anybody has a right to.
I know I survived this kind of behavior stuff from Full Speed when he was exactly this age. I know I have to be consistent and strong with discipline. T.Puzzle has yet to be unfazed by the consequences he has incurred. I’m going to have to up the ante just like I did with Full Speed. I’m running out of options. Pretty soon I’m going to have to start taking away food, shelter and clothing.
I’m almost postive this would make T.Puzzle a naked, starving and sunburned four year old who still refuses to listen to his teachers.
Thank goodness for the dimples…
