Okay, I just got a call from a principal. I am getting a 6th grade girl on Monday (she has out of school suspension tomorrow). It seems she decided to help a FOUR yr. old this morning by carrying her presents into the school for her. She told the preK student that she would take them to the preK teachers for her. They never made it there.
She gave them to her own teachers instead. I can see why she would want to give her teachers something but good grief, you DON'T steal from a 4 year old! Disgusting!

I remember when Hillary strongarmed my milk money from me, and she turned out all right.

Wonder where she'll steal the gift she offers to try butter you up?
Wonder how she'll take the smackdown you put on her?!

You never know what goes on at home Marsha - maybe these next 3 days will be what makes a difference in the rest of her life.

I'm constantly amazed and saddened by some of the stuff I see with kids - knowing that a few years from now what lies down the road for them. You can only do so much, hopefully influence them while they are younger...teachers have a tough job of it, one of the reasons I guess that although I come from a long line of them, I did not choose to become one. I'm too politically incorrect...I don't believe "everyone should win" so that someone doesn't feel bad - it makes for laziness - what is the point in doing your best and you can't even stand out among your peers, because that would make them "feel" bad.

Oh well - sorry - off on a tangent - but good luck Marsha - I've done some volunteer work at the schools with some of the troubled kids - it ain't fun, but maybe something I did helped

These things are sad. Where are the parents in all of this? I would love to hear there side of the story on how their little darling could do something like this.

My solution.

Girl is given a list of work she must do in order to earn the money to replace the presents.

Girl goes to the store and buys replacements presents, then wraps them.

Girl accompanies 4-year old here class and delivers them with an apology to the girl and teacher.

Girl then returns to school.

Basically sounds like an analogy for the current federal tax system.

I worked in a school for troubled kids for a while. When students earned a "consequence," they had to write an essay saying what they had done, why they did it, how the action affected others, why it was considered 'wrong," and what other actions they might have chosen instead that would have had a better outcome. Or it could be, in this case, tell the story from the point of view of the little kid and describe how that child felt about what happened. We would tailor the consequence to fit the offense. I did not have to accept any essay until I was satisfied that the student actually thought out the effects of what she had done. They learned quickly that getting defensive just made the consequence last longer. This might not work in your situation, but it sure helped in mine.
