Dare to discipline

Yesterday I spoke with the boys’ new teacher.  She filled me in on academics and her discipline system.  She informed me that B “reached blue” on the behavior ladder today and will miss part of recess tomorrow as a consequence.

Mom — B, your teacher told me you had a blue card in class today.

B — Yup.

Mom — Do you know why?

B — I can’t remember.

Mom — Miss Teacher said it was because you kept talking out of turn.

B — Oh, that’s right!

Mom — Miss Teacher said you won’t go to recess tomorrow.

B — “I don’t matter.”  I don’t like recess anyway.  It’s okay.
