Somebody's in trouble!!!!!!

and that would be actually two bodies.....

and the winner is .......BEE AND JARIEL (AKA CLYDE)!!!!

There report cards were HORRIBLE!!!!!!

I mean HORRIBLE!!!!!


So, I have confiscated the following:

2 cell phones
2 video ipods
1 xbox 360
1 television
1 computer
-------------------------------

the total of all that = THEIR LIFE!!!!

No more myspace and tagged!!!

No more late night phone calls with the girls!!!

No more Halo tournaments

No more BET and MTV!!!

No more yelling to the top of my lungs because they can't hear me becaues they have music blasting their eardrums out while listening to their ipods.....


How long is this SENTENCE?

1 month..
but they can get off on good behavior if they bring up the grades by progress report!


What are the RESTRICTIONS:

MONDAY-FRIDAY there can be none of the following:

NO VISITORS
IN BED BY NINE
NO COMPUTER
NO PHONE PRIVILEGES
NO TELEVISON
NO OUTSIDE......

They get a free pass on SAT AND SUN....only!!!!


They need to thank their LUCKY STARS for that!

Because I wanted to give them a DEATH SENTENCE! LOL


Jaree on the other hand recieved 7 A's and 1 B....

HER REWARD:

$100 Shopping Spree at Walmart !!!!

She has made the honor roll ever since she started school!

Stay tuned....

Dana, you are a stitch, Girl! WTG on the tough-love thing - I admire you for that. And big kudos to Jaree for her awesome report card!

I'm staying tuned for the live updates!

Congratulations to Jaree! :-)

Good for you!!!! I think so many parents now days take such a lackadaisial attitude about their kids grades and schoolwork. It is so refreshing to see a parent who loves her kids enough that she wants them top succeed no matter what the cost. Hats off to you Dana!!!

Okay, this has be busting up.

I was a teacher for 13 years before leaving 2 years ago to raise my own 3 kids. On behalf of those teachers--thank you!

And as a mom, I say stay strong. It is a tough thing--but you are doing what is best. You know your own kids and what makes them tick. I'd bet my house their grades will be up in no time!

I have to say--I love how you articulated it all. That's what I'm busting up at. You are hilarious! Print this out and show them this post some day...
