She won’t listen at school and they are talking ‘progressive discipline.’

Am reminded of the biblical quote… “When I was child I did childish things; when I became an adult I put away childish things.”

It’s difficult to grow up. I see the tears in her 9 years old eyes and remember what she’s feeling.

I have told her that she needs to demonstrate that she can listen and the best way to do this is stop talking unless spoken to. This is her greatest test as she loves to give opinion.

I am supporting this transition because she is becoming a target to her peers and this is not a fun place to be.

I know.
