You see, I've officially stopped making food for my kid. I know, sounds awful...but the thing is, nothing else was working. The kid was assigned a summer reading project (personally, I think it's mean to assign a kid an assignment over the summer) and he won't read the book. And it's a great book. One of my favorites ever.
- no friends over
- no sleep overs
- no technology
And we've had no results...at all.
So, today when he let me know that he was starving as soon as I got home from work, and I found out that he still hadn't read, well, I told him I was done cooking for him.
And did I create a passionate reader? Well, no. But I did create a kid who has since displayed an amazing ability to cook for himself.
Thinking that makes my parenting moment not a total fail, right?
