Have any of your kids done this? What age?

Sierra has to fill out an assignment book daily, and the teacher likes for us to sign it each night so she knows that they did their homework. I admit that at best I only remember to sign the stupid thing twice a week. Well yesterday her teacher called about her not turning in assignments for a class she has NEVER had homework for. I got to looking and there are notes in the assignment book about things being late, and SHE SIGNED MY NAME on it!!! Isn't this really young for this type of behaviour? I mean... I NEVER signed my parents names. (I did sign things for friends, but never my own parents, and that was like our junior year. She's 10! WTH?

My kids never tried that, but I certainly did. For me and my brother. I think it was high school though.

I'm really afraid that I have my hands full with this one. She's being so rebellious already! And she's only 10. I honestly have nightmares about what she'll be up to in high school! Which is why I am up and on the computer at 4:30 am on a Saturday instead of in bed recovering from my laparoscopic surgery like I SHOULD be doing. ARGH! kids should come with an instruction manual!

The should Steph. Here's my best advise, and let me tell you Sarah was and sometimes still is a handful, don't sweat the small stuff. Give clear rules and clear consequences for each infraction. Be consistent and don't let her push your buttons. And most importantly, take deep breaths and react in love and not anger. ((HUGS))

My son did that last year. He gets a "tuesday folder" and he signed my name to it once. I was so upset and we sat down and talked to him about it. So far he has not done it again!

Ashley hasn't tried that yet, well I haven't caught her at least. Based on her personality though I don't think she would. I never did it as a teen either although I did other things that were much worse LOL.

Kaeli hasn't tried that yet. I'm sure she will. I did, but I think it was HS.

My oldest who is now 24 did this in middle school about 7th grade. Here they get ISS (In school suspension) if caught signing parents name.
Try to talk to your daughter about what is going on why she is not turning her papers in. Get her to understand the legalities of punishment and what the consequences are.

I agree looking at the agenda every day is old when our lives are so full. But you may need to mark it on the calendar and check it off every day. I had 3 kids in 2 schools and it was tough. Now I have only 1 in high school and they don't do this. But it was hard to remember back then so I understand your dilemma.

Good luck in resolving this with your daughter. Just get her to open up and I'm sure the answer will come.

In 6th grade (still like an elementary classroom, with one teacher and one class), I got in trouble for shooting spitballs. I was supposed to take a note home to my parents to get signed. I never did. I forged my dad's name and brought it back to school. I never shot another spitball, in my life, since then. I shudder to think what would have happened at home, if my parents had found out. They still don't know about it and I'm 48 years old! Getting caught by the teacher was all the punishment I needed. So, 6th grade is 10-11 years old. I only did it that one time, though.
