My Little Juvie

Whenever they talked about kids misbehaving at school I used to laugh.  Just throw back my head a gafaw. I mean my kids are demon spawn at home. My daughter as you may know if you read my blog is prone to having her head spin around and spew green vomit at the word "No". And I don't have to remind you about my son smashing in the shower door like Bam Bam on crack. But at school? No way! Not my kids until ...this Wednesday.

On Wednesday I knew something was off the waffles were soggy and the underwear was too tight. But I wasn't prepared for a call from the principals office letting me know my son was now a juvenile delinquent.  On Wednesday a roving gang on 3rd grade boys went nuts in the lunch room. They rolled across the floor they stood when they were told to sit, they kicked doors and made a poor teacher, trying to control the marauding band of berserking 3rd graders, cry.   In short they were bad.

My poor son was (after the fact) a mess not only had he never been bad in school before he had never gotten caught. He was in tears when I came home hiding under the covers. When I thought of my son behaving like that I read him the riot act. Thoughts of evil band of boys throughout the ages played like a lifetime movie through my head. I took away game boys, internet yes even his i-pad!In tears he told me he was ashamed and would never do it again. Satisfied I had put the fear in him I sent him to bed.

Yesterday I was at work when the phone rang. Guess who my boy had gotten in trouble yet again during DETENTION! no less. What the... this boy has no sense! Who get in trouble while they're being in trouble? Yes my boy.

So last night I read another riot act I took away the things I had taken away. I talked about responsibility  how not to follow the crowd. I talked and talked and he cried and cried until vaguely satisfied I put him to bed.

Dear lord what was that...I hope its not the phone.....

aww, honey! so frustrating...I'm sure he feels really bad about it all - after the fact, like you said. isn't it that crucial time when they start to develop their own personality more, and try to figure out who they are in relation to others blah blah blah? he won't enjoy getting read the riot act every night before bed, so I trust he'll make the right decisions in the long run. if it makes you feel any better, my little angel just finally earned his video games back after MANY months of kowtowing to my every whim via a point system (points earned for good grades, good behavior, helping out around the house, etc.) - but he doesn't have a computer, an ipad, or a tv...

Oh good grief! 1, no...no sense in him! 2, I can't say anything else because I KNOW my little SJ will be the same...only he'll be the ringleader instead of a toady. *sigh*

nooooo! Z says take away his clothes - that'll learn 'im. hugs, darling, I know I'd be bald if tearing my hair out over the kid didn't hurt too much to actually accomplish.
