difficult child (4th grade) has gotten in trouble too many times at school this year. They send home a report called a "level one" when he misbehaves. Long story short, due to the number of level ones difficult child has received this year he could be made to attend a different school next year. That would be the natural consequence of his poor choices. difficult child and I had a deal that if he could make it for the last 10 days of school with no bad reports or notes sent home I would buy him an mp3 player. We did the whole CPS process, Plan B, came up with strategies, even did some role playing; it didn't help. Another level one was imposed on Friday. Of course, to me this means no mp3 player. I'm trying to decide how to break that to difficult child since he has conveniently forgotten about our deal. And what about easy child? He was promised the mp3 player too, and he has upheld his side of the bargain by not getting into trouble. What would you do?
