Cherub 2 loves school. He pays attention, he works hard, he engages in each lesson. However, cherub 2 is having a little (fine ALOT) of trouble zipping it at school. In other words, he is disrupting the teacher and the class. Cracking jokes, talking out of turn, talking, talking, talking. Period. Daily, he comes home with an index card and receives a smiley face for a good day, an X for each "blurt out blaster" he gets. Basically whenever he "blurts" out of turn. X makes a notsogood day. When he has received an X, we have grounded him at home. It worked for a couple of days. Now today, X again.
X stands for Xtra frustrated. X stands for Xtra disappointed. X stands for Xtra outta ideas to get him to understand....STOP TALKING.
