Let him fail, he has to learn time management and responsibility
Great lesson in priorities and consequences.
I did that all the time. I'm a brilliant engineer now. Don't worry about it. XD
Lool... Good job to him xD<br />
Honestly don't they have to write down the homework? We used to have to? Or teachers post it on the school homepage too(teacher parent section) and when we were younger our mum used to check that...
Ups... That really sucks...
So guess he went without it right?
Lucky it's not me I'd be in a hell lot of trouble... And from that moment on defenitly not alowed to be outside or online or so before all homework is done...
Feard so for him... Hope you're not like my mum... That would allso have cost my allowence...
Since to her school was equal to a job... Not doing your job means no allowence... And since it goes furthere there... Yeah some more too...
Glad he managed to get it done...
Had... Sadly... Not that my sis is much different there... But haveing spent some time with people who didn't care... Learnd my self to make sure I get good grades... Not all a's since dislexia and French doesn't mix... But most...
Thought I do admit I used to ditch math... Getting good grades you have to do something to not be considerd a total nerd...
But yeah my sis at some point decided not to accept stuff like that anymore...
Thanks and yes sheis...
I will intend to attend to the MIT... So have to...
It's ok... It happend years ago and no one can live forever... I know she could have never lived with an aborton so I'm kinda ok with it... Still miss her but yeah it was sorta her desicion and she put my sis before herself...
show him some most wanted pictures-tell your son that career criminals always start out with unfinished reports as kids and he's on the fast track to the slammer if he doesn't shape up!
still plenty of time
Oh well. Maybe he'll learn from it and remember the next time.
Lol .. Of course !
Hahaha good luck pulling that off.
I would tell him to go apologize to his teacher for wasting their time.
do you think he'll get a good grade?
The teacher will likely have to give him a 70 so he doesn't fail.
well that's what they said about me too, maybe you should talk to him about how he feels there, I never did well and barely graduated and I consistently test at 161 IQ
The joys of being a mom. Hang in there
Wow, my hat goes off to you, the good thing, you are involved in their lives and am sure that report will be done soon.
Am sure he is, lol. Thanks for bringing a laugh and a smile early this morning
Put him on the bus, and pay more attention to his school work in the future.
No, but I have taken in a teenager.
And I checked on their home work and schedule.
You have to make sure they get it done.
Hmmmm...you have to check to make sure they get it done? I find that interesting...here is a Mom that takes care of 3 boys and presumably a father too...perhaps your taken-in teenager is a little more responsible than the average teenage boy that you even have time to follow up on everything. Its good you are super step mom or whatever you are but here in the real world its a full time job just cleaning up after them and feeding them and providing for their extracurricular activities let alone having to hold their hand and prevent them from learning to be responsible for their own actions. Clearly this mother is frustrated at her son's lack of care for things she feels are important.
Well, I must be perfect.
I sat down with my niece, while she did her homework, I read or drew patterns, and chatted with her while she did her work.
But she got it done!
I also turned off all tv. radio, etc.
Sometimes you have to get off your selfish but, and set an example, and sit there WITH them, not doing their work....but be WITH THEM.
You seem to know much about parenting...a niece that you read and draw patterns for and interrupt while she does her homework does not sound like a teenager, nor does it sound like you have a busy house full of teenagers or indeed any other responsibilities. What you describe is nice when life allows but life rarely allows it once the children grow up. If this woman had the luxury of only one child and no other responsibilities, she'd do like you do. She has 3 teenage boys, she is doing a wonderful job with.
Oh yes, its a butt...by the way...selfish butt, and I can tell you for a fact the lady you are maligning in your very immature and rather uneducated way, is FAR from selfish.
I didn't read and draw patterns FOR her!
I was doing my OWN studies, at the table WITH her!
If you have the right coping skills, the family can work together...just saying.
I fail to see where jealousy even factors in here but whatever dude. Its a bit of a stretch to go from a son not doing a report to a family not working together. Really, you are just being argumentative and not engaging your brain before typing. Children learn much by example and as a parent we must learn to balance our examples and our lessons. Clearly this example is not about a mother that can't cope or does not have the skills to maintain her family. She is busy, more busy than you can ever imagine with your one responsibility. She is expressing her frustration that despite her excellent example and her lessons, she has a son that just is not getting it. Many of us real parents have been there many times.
What fantasy are you on?
From the OP, I don't get that's she's even CHECKING on the homework, let alone, setting an example and place to do it!
She's just assuming he's doing it on his own.
Well guess not, he isn't.
She has to step in, and MAKE SURE IT'S DONE!
That means talking to the teachers, and being all up in his business!!!!!!
Seriously, you get ALL that from the original post? Dude, I know this woman, we are wonderful friends. You, sir, do not know a thing about her or her situation and are reading WAY too much into a single line of text. Go troll somewhere else, your juvenile opinions are not needed or welcome.
I don't troll.
I was speaking from MY EXPERIENCE!
Or you could imply that you're there for them, when you're writing.
Do you have a consequence when they don't inform you?
If I'm judging, it's because I've seen a loft of lazy/coddling parents, that never ask anything of their children.
I know there are other circumstances that are beyond a parents control.
But I do believe making an example, and sitting there WITH the child.
Then YOU KNOW their home work is done.
I let my niece know up front, if she didn't do well in her classes, she will have limitations.
Once again dude, you are jumping to conclusions without knowing anything about the person you are speaking about. I feel sorry for you that you need to validate your existence by being argumentative and abrasive and attempting to generate drama. Your arguments don't even make sense. How can she sit and make sure THIS assignment was done when it was not written down? Seriously, take your drama elsewhere and leave the discussion of real issues up to the grownups.
"How can she sit and make sure THIS assignment was done when it was not written down?"
There's a thing called the Internet, and some teacher post, the assignments for the day.
Perhaps mommy can request the teacher do this.
If the child isn't doing what they're supposed to be doing then mommy has to up her game, and get involved, and find out.
Go away little man, your need to argue is pathetic. You are inventing things in order to justify your continued argument. One key part of communication you seem to miss is when one is debating something it is imperative that not only do you argue the original topic instead of making things up to continue but you should also read or listen carefully to what the other side is saying. This is one single incident, not a trend and to blame the mother for something based on conjecture and zero parenting experience and skills on your part is just ludicrous. Clearly you wish to justify your own pathetic existence by continuing an argument long after it was over. Negative attention is still attention I guess. I do feel sorry for you sir. You must be a sad sad man.
BTW, she was a slob.
She had a problem taking her dishes to the sink.
That was my ONLY problem with her.
You're assuming you know more about her family than she does... which is crazy. I was a teenager once, I was smart enough, I just never took personal responsibility. It's his choice.
It's his choice as to how he wants to live his life.
Then your parents sucked because they didn't make you take responsibility.
I bet you have a record too.
Guess what, I don't.
BTW, I'm FEMALE.
I haven't logged on in a while, I don't know why my icon was male.
I changed it to a cute kitty cat.
This coming from a dude with no parenting skills and experience! It's funny how the only ones that know exactly how to raise a child are those that don't have any. Taking a niece in at some point in her life for god only knows what reason or how long does NOT make you an expert parent. It makes you a nice uncle.
