CH got his report card yesterday. Or maybe it was the day before. I’ve got my days all mixed up as of late. Life with an infant will do that.
Any who, at the beginning of the year, his chemistry grade was a H.A.M. There was tutoring available and he wasn’t taking advantage of it. He was acting like a D was cool. Uh, no.
So needless to say, I was psyched to see his final grade as a B! Like maybe some of what I said was sinking in. He did get a C in math, but there’s some delay in the final grade on the state exam. He could possibly end up with a B in there as well.
I got home today and HH told me to go look in CH’s room. I knocked and went in to find a tv on his tall dresser.
Me: nice! See what happens when you bring those grades up?
Him: wait. This is because of my grades?
Me: not solely, but do you think this tv would be here if your report card had C’s and D’s?
Him: *looking as if a lightbulb came on* nope!
Now, I actually didn’t know HH was gonna get him a tv today. We need to flesh out the rules for usage and what things constitute removing the satellite box and Xbox. But I hope he sees now that there can be good consequences for doing what you’re supposed to do. It’s a welcomed change from having to discipline all. The. Time.
We shall see how long this lasts. LOL
