Hey all. I’ve not posted in a while. But this group is very
informative to me and I get alot of ideas here and have gotten alot
of good advice. I have a bit of a problem today. My first grader
is in trouble at school today. My dh went in to have lunch with
him, and the teacher spoke with him. J.T., my son, was caught
cheating on his spelling test today, and a note is to be sent home
in his backpack letting me know of the situation. I am suprised at
my son, since he KNEW the words! Or atleast I thought he did, lol.
There is just no excuse for this behavior. In the past he has
gotten in trouble for other things and I’ve received a call from the
teacher on two different occasions for horseplay once and rolling
his eyes at a teacher the other time. For these things he got
extended time outs and loss of toys. I try to save spankings for
the blantant sort of misbehavior. But I don’t know how to handle
this cheating thing best. I have the Creative Correction book by
Lisa Welchel. But other than using the vs. Proverbs 15:3 (The eyes
of the Lord are everywhere, keeping watch on the wicked and the
good), I don’t have a specific idea. Any help would be
appreciated. I really want my son to understand that cheating is
wrong, and that it has consequences. Thanks ahead of time:) Barb
