Either this kid thinks I'm stupid, or he is so afraid of what will happen if he gets a bad quarter grade (losing video games for a month), or he just has no concept of right and wrong.... He had to get sign-off by a parent on a practice sheet each week for orchestra. He never practices his instrument unless there's a concert coming up or we have company. I refuse to nag him to do it. I logged onto his grade website last week and noticed he was getting a "C" in orchestra -- this should be an easy "A" for him. I confronted him about the missing practice sheets and said he had to figure out what he was going to do about them. First, he tried to get me to believe that his dad signed off on the sheets. I asked him what his dad will say when I ask him to verify this. Then he admitted that he forged my signature and turned them in, getting 1/2 credit since they were all late. So now he's still getting a "C+" in the class AND he has a very ticked off mother. I am thinking of calling the teacher to let her know about this. Maybe I should even get the school psychologist involved. It's the second time he's forged my signature on school paper this year, and I dragged him to the therapists office after the last one. Looks like the talk didn't sink in as deep as we needed it to. Granted, the weeks this went neglected were during husband's brain surgery and early recovery. I'm just now getting my head back into things with the kids' school stuff and he's 4 weeks post-op. Any sage advice here?
