  • Why do you need help if it is his homework? Doesn't it say he has to think of 20 reasons?

  • Yes...it has to be 20 reasons....Its so crazy!!! He is so upset and crying because we cant think of them...So of the kids in the class were being bad during a fire drill today and now the class has to suffer. I contacted the teacher and she said Ocean wasn't the one being bad but he still has to do the homework...

  • The teacher is having the children write 20 reasons why it is important to obey a fire drill because kids were not paying attention in class. You son should be able to come up with a few reasons on his own if he was paying attention.
