During the summer I always give my DS school work to do Monday-Friday so he can be a little prepared for the next year. I left him a note of what to do which was to Read First- 4 chapters in his chapter book and write something telling me what those chapters were about, read the rest of a book that he didn't finish on Friday, 1 math worksheet, 10 division and multiplication problems, and he has 10 spelling words that he has to write 10 x each and told him NO TV til it was done.
I didn't wake up til about 9:00 cause I wasn't feeling well and ended up get a call from my DH that he had burned his hand doing something so we had to take him to the doctors I wasn't really thinking about asking DS about his work so when we got back home DS sat down in front of the TV and starts watching a show he knows I don't approve of and I ask him if he finished his work and he tells me no and starts trying to give excuses which of course doesn't work since he had about 4 hours to get it all done.
While we were out earlier his friends mom called and asked if we wanted to come over and hang out and go swimming since it's my DSs birthday and I told her sure but now that I've found out about him not doing what he was told I told him we were still going to go over but that he would have to sit there and watch us swim and have a good time.
I'm just wondering what you other moms would do in this situation if anything at all? Should I punish him in a different way or wait til after his birthday?
