Younger Boy threw a fit tonight about having to do his homework.  So much of it is late.  There is always a "reason" he can't do it.  Sometimes he already checked the book back in.  Sometimes he doesn't know what he is supposed to do.  Sometimes he didn't get the worksheets.

He is FOUR PROJECTS plus everyday homework behind.  I told him yesterday that he needs to bring everything home to do the projects tonight.  He chose to bring home NOTHING.  He thought maybe he brought home what he needed for the science project, but lo and behold...he didn't.

Tonight I emailed his teacher asking her to check his backpack tomorrow before he leaves to make sure he has everything needed to complete the projects.  She agreed.

We are going to be working on projects and nothing else this week.  We will miss youth group on Wednesday night.  It isn't like there haven't been warnings.  It isn't like rewards haven't been offered.  Now it just isn't negotiable anymore.  Homework gets done or you just go to bed.

I don't even know what to pray for in terms of homework anymore other than my own patience.
