My oldest was put on yellow today at school (that means he got in trouble), for talking during silent reading. He was given 2 warnings and moved before the teacher put him on yellow so he had his fair chance to stop talking and didn't. He and I were discussing the issue after school and I was telling him that talking during silent reading isn't okay and not doing as his teacher asked isn't okay, and then he said this..........

"I just want to be me. I don't want to try and be what somebody else tells me to."

............ and yes, I know he gets that attitude from me.

Oh the teenage years will be exciting.

Kudos to him for figuring that one out so soon!
But not so much kudos on getting into trouble. ;0)

Wowzers! Good luck with that one. And p.s. when I read this I did think that it sounded like it could have also been a direct quote from you! Lol. Gotta love that our kids are so much like us...the good, the bad, and the ugly.
