I posted last week about school. This week has been much better apparently due to the "talks" we've all been having with her. Her teacher said that she was a model student 2 of the past 3 days this week (who knows about today!). But I think we need to have these little talks with her like every single day to keep enforcing how important it is to do her schoolwork, participate, etc. I've also asked her teacher to allow her to finish homework on the weekends so I can have more time to help. Crummy thing that happened was we found out that she stole $10 from my wallet last week. I think she's done it before but this is the first time she's been caught. She wanted to by a pencil that smells and I told her no but she didn't care. She was an emotional wreck on Wed eve but I'm hoping I was able to get it across to her...at least a little. But now I need to be extra careful about how much money I have in my wallet. We caught her shoplifting about a year and a half ago. We marched her right back to the store (crying) and made her return it to the guy at the counter. I'm guessing that this might be an issue from time to time because she takes things out of our room that she shouldn't touch. I wonder if this is normal for kids this age, or if there is any good ways to help enforce no stealing?
