My son is 12 years old. A and B student. For the most part he is a good kid. There is an occasional back talking, and just the normal 12 year old attitude. Yesterday he decided to take a plastic bag and put baking soda in it, and claimed to all his friends that it was crack. In no way does my child see this sort of behavior from home. People always say, a child will model what he see's from his parents. He does not see such a thing at home and never has. So because of that i am clueless as to why he would do such a thing. I have asked him and he says it's cause he wanted to seem cooler in school. I aslo have a hard time believing that considering he has lots of friends and is quite socially active in school. My question to all of you is......what is a sufficient enough punishment for him? He has already been suspended from school for 2 days. Some sort of discipline needs to be established at home as well. Thank you.Answer Question
