I don’y usually write parenting posts. And I especially don’t usually write posts that are the day-to-day goings on of my children. But this made me laugh…
Last night, after so-so parent teacher interview with my 10 year old daughter’s teachers I tried to have a heart to heart with her. I tried the “two stars and a wish” approach where you highlight two positives and then one thing to work on.
I said “it seems like your teachers think you are very bright and that you are very kind to the other kids, and (and then I wanted to get into ‘you have a hard time getting down to work because you are more interested in socializing than working’).
But before I could get that last part out, she cut me off: “Hold it! Hold it!. I know what you’re doing. You butter me up and then you throw me on the plate and take a bite!”
Brilliant!! Now wonder the kids are entertained by her.
