DH got 2 different calls from ss school today 1st ss is about to get a referral cuz he's been avoiding 4 racked up detentions has 10 missing assignments and now has an F in math so every time we have asked about homework he has lied to us and has blown off the teacher everytime she said to come back and see her at the end of the day. 2nd he's been telling his science teacher that he has headaches for the past 2 or 3 days and has basically been going ti the nurse office and effectively ditching science without getting caught( he uses headaches as a way to get out of trouble at home not sure if he's really loving them and needs a Dr or if he's faking it) effective punishment is out of dh's scope and I'm so angry I can't see straight need ideas please. Ss is 11yrs and in middle school.
*He is now grounded until he serves all his back detentions. And will be given various writing assignments from DH and I to take place if his free time while grounded. Also found that he may have stolen $45 from DH and I. Will be checking on that Monday to see if its just a mix up. Thankyou to those who were helpful in reminding me know that he is being a preteen and that he is not alone in this behavior.
