He's funny. Witty with a touch of sarcasm. Just the kind of humor that I enjoy and appreciate.However, like many middle-schoolers, he needs to learn when to turn it off. "It" being the chatty, funny stuff. In other words, he needs to find his "Off Button" and use it. There's a fine line between witty and downright annoying (something Jim Carrey never learned) and he's crossing that line at school.
This past week he was sent out into the hall for talking in class. It seems that this has been going on for awhile and repeated requests to BE QUIET have gone unheeded.
So, he now faces a choice....find that "Off Button" on your own and OR we'll find it for you.
If you would have told me ten years ago that I would be disciplining him for talking too much in class, I would have given you a hug. Ten years ago, at the age of three, he was diagnosed with several speech impediments. He was in therapy for almost nine years.
