I decided to start doing "toddler school" for the wild ones. This is how it went:
*2 fun pages, colors, full bellies, ample reward stickers and personal space.
*Lola worked diligently for 20 minutes. She traced her "ones," needing little assistance and zero correction.
*Cale wouldn't even look at the offensive fun page.
*He requested a snack then smeared it on his work.
*Then, he quickly escaped from his chair and moved it over to Lola to do this:
*He pulled her hair and screamed to distract her from her studies. She kept telling him, "No, Cale, go work!"
After awhile, he was removed from the classroom for poor behavior. I wanted to write him up, but, alas, I am the teacher, cafeteria lady and principal in this endeavor.
So, I sassed him good and let Lola finish.
Eventually, though, he did get to participate in his favorite activity:
*Put Lola in the wagon and cover her with toys.
One of these children did not get an "A" on the first day of school.
