While I was driving my son to school, he informed me of a homework assignment that should have been done the previous night. Jeremy is in the third grade and hates it, particularly math. If I ask him what he did during the day his answer is, “I don’t know.” I would have better luck winning fifty million dollars in a lottery than pulling any sort of school related information out of him.
The incomplete assignment was a math assignment, of course. When I asked why he didn’t tell me about the homework, his response was, “I forgot.” Immediately, I lost my cool and raised my voice, even said harsh words about his irresponsibility.
