I hope you are sitting down for what I am about to tell you will astound you.
Hold on to your seats.
This particular child cannot be quiet.
And she picks and chooses when to follow directions.
Are you shocked?
Today in her agenda from school was a note from her teacher:
"Anna lost two points for talking excessively and loudly in the hall and in class, and for being in the wrong place during class."
Now, we get these notes every other week or so.
But today's note had a bit extra.
The guilty child wrote mom a message just under the teacher's note:
"Please don't tell me. I know."
When I asked her about her message to me, she said....
"I know. I need to be quiet. I can't play in class. I need to listen to my teacher."
Yeah, yeah, yeah.
Guess it's easier said then done, huh?
