Re: What is a natural consequence to
I soooo can relate to this!!
My son has lost 3 water bottles and 2 lunch boxes so far this year. I have not sent him without a lunch but I have made him purchase a replacement water bottle out of his allowance and I've sent him with plastic grocery bags.
He seems like he is getting better about it. I don't really want to punish him because I know it is just due to absentmindedness, but then again Water bottles are at least 8 bucks and lunch boxes are 10 and I will not replace them an infinite number of times. Hopefully as the year goes on, a checklist will begin to establish itself when getting ready for pick up.
