Natural Consequences for SD
Sd and her friends are in a tiff. One "friend" is in her study hall class. Yesterday DH gets an alert that SD isn't in study hall. Mmm...hmm......next thing he gets a text from SD telling him..that she has detention. DH asks "Why do you have detention?" Its because she skipped study hall.
DH told SD..under no circumstances is she to skip classes..even study hall. He understands things are tense with her "friend" but skipping class is a hard NO. DH told her..there are plenty of times in life you have to be in the proximity of someone you are in a tiff with. This is a learning opportunity for you to learn how to deal with that..and skipping study hall is NOT the solve.
So..yesterday she did her detention and we are "assuming" Beaver or someone from the Beaver clan picked her up, since this is Beaver's week.
Today....SD has another day of detention. She sends DH a text...
"Dad can you pick me up today after detention around 3?"
DH - "NO I am working and I have meetings all afternoon."
SD.."Can Halo pick me up?
DH- "NO.she cannot. "
SD "I guess I will have to walk home. sad frowny face emoji"
DH- "yes you will have to walk home. Lets be clear if you get more detentions and you are at our house...you will walk home. Neither myself or Halo are going to pick you up from a situation you created and could easily avoid."
Whew....DH knows even if I could get out of work (which I can't) I wouldn't pick up SD from detention. Our house is less than .5 miles from the school, SD can walk. Perhaps she will use that time to relect on her choices.....BAWWWHAHAHAHAHAHA..NAH SHE WON'T.
