I picked LG up yesterday and once we got home I asked her to tell me what happened.
*They pull sticks for misbehavior. Three sticks pulled in one day=a write up. We’ve told LG that write ups warrant spankings*
LG pulled a stick that morning for talking. I know, you’re shocked!
Later on the teacher told them to stop breaking the points off their pencils. LG went up to the teacher and confessed that she’d broken her pencil point. 2nd stick pulled.
They now have bathroom monitors (their classmates). The rule is no talking in the bathroom. LG talked.
The teacher told LG to come out of the bathroom. LG didn’t want to because she thought she was going to have to pull her third stick so she refused. The teacher told her again to come out and LG was explaining (from inside the bathroom) that she didn’t want to come out but that she wasn’t playing in the sink like the teacher thought she was.
She came out the bathroom. The third stick was pulled. I was called.
So…I didn’t spank her. I gave her a long lecture (Mrs Count – you would’ve been so happy!) about respect, facing the consequences of your behavior, etc., etc. No TV, iPod, or DS for the week and she’s not going to Girl Scouts on Thursday. And if I ever get another phone call because she’s blatantly disrespected the teacher it is on.
We shall see!
