How often?

How often does your child forget things at school? My son forgot his Friday folder for the umteeth time... And that has the weekly newsletter, his weekly reading log, and all the homework and classwork they did that week. Also, HOW can I make him remember his stuff?

  • Mine are thankfully Im past that stage. My boys were the worst. It was all I could do to get them to school let alone thru school. Then my oldest one left for college and graduated with honors. My youngest joined the Army and hold a 4.0 at college as well. Go figure! Ugh! I didnt/dont have that problem with my girls...their problems were their friends! Yikes! Thank goodness that phase has went north too...and you think the terrible twos were the worst years...LOL...NOT!

  • My 9 year-old never forgets anything.
    My 12 year-old can be spacey. He forgets to bring things home a couple times a month.
