the little big man's grades dropped this 3rd quarter from last. significantly. that's adding insult to injury because from the first to the second quarter it has already dropped and he had made a promise to get them back up but still, he disappointed me. i found out he has not submitted a couple of homeworks and a book report which he had already made but lost and did not make any effort to make another to submit. he had high grades in oral and class work and most of his exams and quizzes which only meant he was doing good, if only he'd submitted those darn homeworks!
i told him how irresponsible he had become and really made him feel how disappointed i was in what he had done. or had not done, for that matter. i decided to ground him in some way by banning the use of the iPad for the rest of the 4th quarter and he will only be concentrating on homeworks and taekwondo.
