Now we all believe that we need to give our kids more independence and choice. However, I draw the line at:
-Doing homework with a pen. The answers can’t be erased. Today I had to re-write 4 pages of worksheet that were filled out (without trying to THINK) in pen.
-Cutting your own hair. (Yes, she did today. Her older sister gave a loud yelp on seeing it, but thank G-d it wasn’t too bad.)
-Trying to cook something new with no instructions or recipe. (Try frying noodle bits with no water of oil.)
As you can see, on top of homework procrastination, regular arguments, etc, we have had quite a day. Well tomorrow is a new day!
