A friend of mine's 15 yr old son was given ISS last week for "disrupting class and exessive talking." I guess he's been told before that he and this other girl need to cut back on visiting and paying more attention in class.
He finally got ISS, and mom is kind of stuck in the middle. This is her step child and dad doesn't think its that big of a deal. His grades are great, all A's but 1 B I believe and dad says that teachers sometimes make a bigger deal of things.
Mom still wants to discipline him in some way, but dad says that since he does have good grades and it's his first "offense" they should let this one go.
He is normally a really good kid, never gets in trouble other than occasional sibling fights and argument.
Would you punish yours for this, if so how?
Thanks for the feedback....she's liking the advice! One thing she wanted me to add was that there are siblings in the house and he is the oldest....if he doesn't get disciplined for this, but a younger sibling is being punished for lying once to a teacher about having candy in his backpack, or not cleaning their room, is it fair to the others?
