Hi all (= I'm a SAHM. I'm a SM of 5, have 2 from previous marraige and am expecting. Big Family, I know!
So, I just fouond out from the school that my 13yo SS has a detention to do. The school called to schedule it and that's how DH and I found out. This is totally out of character for 13yo SS. If he has late homework slips he usually lets us know about them. I asked some questions about the detention and His teacher stated that he had a late slip last wednesday that wasn't signed and returned, and he hasn't turned in any homework since thursday!
This really isn't like him. I think maybe he's just ready for summer break but I guess he didn't think we would find out about this incident. I always ask when they come home, How their day was, what was fun about it, did they learn anything new, and last but not least how much homework do you have today.
He has a new friend in town and spends a lot of time over there and I allow him to ride his bike there, thinking he has no homework. I trust him to tell me the truth, He has been caught doing this before but it was months ago and by being grounded form his video games, assumed he learned his lesson.His teacher is a little different from the other's as she doesn't like to email. So I have to get and recieve messages through the office staff. He is a very smart kid but has a very sneaky side as well.
Sorry for the long post, Any similar experiences or advice? fThanks (=
