For 3 days in a row he has things for me to write about! I had to write it down before I forget!
We were driving back after I picked him up from school and suddenly I saw him hanging yet another new mechanical pencil on his shirt.
Me-where did u get that pencil?
*quickly took the pencil and hid it*
He had the most guilty look as we have talked about this issue like a million times. He has like a million of these pencils and yet he keeps buying them! Not only pencils, he has like countless rulers & erasers too! It’s like why does he need so many? I told him he has only one had that can write, why does he need so many? I really don’t mind if he does well in his work but for the way he does his work..it’s like what for??? He doesn’t like to do his homework but he needs a million pencils….
Me-Where did u get the money to buy this pencil?
*silence and his face is turning into a more guilty look*
Me-Who gave you this pencil?
*still in silence*
Me-You better tell me and don’t lie to me as God is listening…
K-I took the money from the cupboard.
Me-Is the money yours?
Me-If you have taken something that doesn’t belong to you, what does that mean?
Me-What? I can’t hear u..
K-I stole the money..
Me-I’m so disappointed with you Kieran..how many times have I told you that you do not need so many pencils? And now you have actually stolen money to buy another! You are definitely going to be punished..I want you to kneel and pull your ears when we reach home..
The moment we reached home, he zoomed upstairs to shower without me screaming at him. Then as I was serving dinner, I suddenly saw him already kneeling down & pulling his ears! See how guilty he was! I told him to eat first & then complete his homework and then continue his punishment. I made him say “I will not steal again..” repeatedly till he got really tired!
see the little girl..kor kor kena punished and she thought it was a game!
