The Teen and the Boy have a new punishment. Rather than yell, scream, spank, or channel my inner Madlyn Primoff, I now send them to their rooms, pen and paper in hand, and have them write a note to the person they have wronged.
The Teen’s “Apology”
The Boy’s reply
On Family Life Today’s Podcast, a mother claims she has a journal for her five kids and she makes a note each night about them. Since I like to crib good ideas, I have purchased the two journals to keep track of their apologies, their thoughts, and yes, I will add my own thoughts.
There will be mixed reactions to this, but anything to keep from working on my second sock.
