Day 12: Penmanship for Parenting

Not every day is pretty, just like in every other family, too.
Peanut had a very hard time remembering who the parent is and who the child. She always keeps me on my toes for sure and most days, we keep things in a balance. But today, she just kept pushing the boundaries.

So the principal of our school came up with a 'correcting of her bad attitude' assignment. She had to write: "I will listen and obey." Now to me, this is also great exercise for penmanship. She could see that some lines had the same length and other lines were either extremely short or very long. Learning how to space letters is not easy. So we turned the correcting into a learning moment. And she did change her attitude.
