It has really been a rough time with Child A --
A : 14 girl Mood Disorders and believes often the rules do not apply -Has Current history of stealing (no, the police has not been called Yet)
Child A really has some very bad habits that we have been trying to have her break. Theft being the big one. None of her siblings trust her with their things. She has to be patted down, and searched each time she leaves our house, to make sure she isn't taking anything from her siblings. Child A's other bad habits are lying, and not willing to do what needs to be done, to get ungrounded.
You see, this child has been assigned Community Service by her parents due to her stealing and lying. She must do it to become ungrounded. She has yet to even plan a day to do so, let alone work towards resolving it. Now you may say she's 14 ... EXACTLY!! She is 14 but she often decides she is 8 -- or at least acts like it. She is 14, she can plan her days, and decide when she will be doing the community service. Personally if I was her, and have suggested this to her, I would do it before we get *HOT*! We are in Albuquerque, NM and it gets to be over 100*F here. We expect her to do the community service. At this rate she will be doing it all summer long, and it was a very mild winter, so we expect a very warm summer.
Soooo Hope she gets her actions in gear....
