Okay so my middle child who is very irresponsible (normally leaving things undone, very lazy attitude in general) is on the bus when she yells through the window to me "I forgot my report! Bring it to the school!!" I had told her last night to make sure to put it in her backpack but she didn't. She does this often. She got the info to do her report from her teacher 2 weeks ago but she put it off until last night. Her report is a pitiful half done thing and now it is sitting on the computer desk next to me. I refuse to bring it to her because I feel that she is old enough to begin being more responsible and to face the consequences when she isn't. She just turned 8. What do you think?
