First off, I am in SHOCK. Today I found out not only has my dd (3rd grader) not been turning in her homework but she has been lying to me and the teacher probably for weeks. She lies and says she stuided when she didn't or says she left her study guide at school to me, but to her teacher says she left it at home to her teacher and just hides everything in her desk. She has not been turning in work. She also CHEATED today.......I almost cried! Her teacher was shocked too because Hannah is usually so good at doing what she should. We are both going to make a team effort to crack down on her behavior. I have no idea what started this. The teacher said her report card is going to go way down this time. I said that is fine and be as firm with her as you have too. My heart hurts. My child is cheating and lying and we have no idea why. We have had some stress at home, but nothing that really involves her or that she knows about. She denies being bullied. I have no idea how to punish her. I have taken away all tv, all compute and wii etc etc. Should I do anything else? Make her work on school work? What? I have never had a child do this. I am so sad she'd do such. We talked to her tonight. I told her we are disappointed in your behavior. You are a good girl but you have made some very bad choices.
HELP HELP HELP. She has such a sweet attitude, heart and spirit so for her to do such comes out of left field. Thanks in advance.
