Learning to Apologize

We usually get good reports on Trey from his school teachers but occasionally he gets in trouble. Usually it’s because he isn’t listening to his teacher – too distracted with something fun.

He recently had to sit in time out at school for not listening to his teacher and I heard about it. He had been pushing a book back and forth with another kid and they ignored her instructions to stop. When we got home he lost his pre-nap playtime and had to write an apology note for her. Here’s what he came up with.

The drawing shows her telling him to obey and him saying “Yes” and putting the book up. Notice the elbows and knees in his people drawings – he seems to put a lot of emphasis on those joints of late.
