Re: Help with 7yo school issue?

Is your son very bright? I just ask because my dd is 8 and she would never be able to figure out HOW to cheat even if it did occur to her.

But anyway, he's 7. He's still learning all kinds of things and honesty and integrity are one of those things. It's simply another learning opportunity. Honesty is actually a difficult concept I think. He can know that you shouldn't cheat but it is hard to really understand and explain why. More than punishing, I would research a lot of opportunities to reinforce those values.
