Would you bring a book to school if 16 DS forgot it?

Hubby thinks I should not. I brought it to the school for him. Thoughts. It does not happen often.

  • Sure I would, everyone deserves a break now and then.

  • If it doesn't happen often then yes. But with that explaination. And here is why. I expect my hubby and friends to have my back. If I forget something, I expect them to help me. AND I fully expect to reciprocate. Friends do this for each other. If he did it because he is usually careless, then no. I wouldn't.

  • I agree with anon. If they do it very often no. If they are a good student and this never happens then yes.

  • I had this problem Wednesday, since our 13 yr old has been careless lately I didn't take it to him. I felt then maybe he would think about the next time. I told him when he came home that he forgot it and he said "I know". That was enough for me, his attitude will have to change in order for me to help him out.

  • not if it happens too often, depends on the situation, is he forgetting? You should ask him in the morning if he's sure he's got everything. Tell him everytime he forgets something and you have to bring it to him, he has to do one of your chores. I'm sure dishes or laundry will make him check his backpack twice! Gas is not cheap.
