I am forever asking questions reguarding my 10 year old because sometimes I really just don't know which direction to take with him on certain things and like to get a little insight from moms with kids this age or have had experience with thier kids already being this age.
This year,since he is older, I'm doing things a little differently.I want him to take responsibility for himself for turning in his work&completing it. It takes everything I have within me to not stress out over this and just get on him to make him do this stuff the right way! For example,he has to read nightly for 15 minutes and I have to sign off on it.He refuses to do it,yet he blames me when his "mean" teacher wants to know where this paper is.I won't sign for something he didnt do.I've told him that he will suffer the consequences for not doing his work by getting bad grades.He just doesnt seem to care.How do/did you handle this?
