Lying, cheating, stealing, being sneaky, and being disrespectful to adults.Submitted by Unhappy on Mon, 01/14/2013 - 2:17pm
So if you followed my previous blog you will know that SD got caught cheating on a spelling test on Friday. She lied about knowing that having a notebook on her lap during the test was cheating when Dh questioned her. She was grounded to her room Friday night.
Saturday we found out that she stole a ring from the lost and found at school so she was grounded for the rest of the weekend. No movies, no treats, no TV. Just her room and books and puzzles.
Sunday I wake up to find her in her room watching movies. Apparently she "forgot" that she was grounded for stealing even though her brother reminded her and just decided that she was going to watch three movies while DH and I slept. Not to mention all of the attitude she has with DH whenever she talks to him.
I told DH last night that when she returns she should lose her movie previlages on Friday and Saturday night because of all of her bad behavior. She did have to write sentences for being sneaky in regards to the movies but it only took her 10 minutes to do them. For me, I don't see this as being a very big deterint in the future in regards to her doing it again. DH of course disagrees with this and wants to talk about it later.
What do you ladies think? Am I being to harsh? I think her behavior is way out of control and she's only 8.
