Non Poultry Questioins : PARENTING ADVICE NEEDED
so, my gifted 12 year old has been lying about getting homework done, and today for state assessment testing, she did her test in 5 minutes flat, refused to go check it like the teacher asked, and get the 2nd LOWEST grade in the class. Now, she hates this subject, but as a gifted student, I expect "c" equivalents min. even in her worst subject. This is like an F.
So, instead of killing her, or beating her, which I never do, how do I make the punishment fit the crime? Shes stubborn, defient, and is mostly unaffected by punishment. Her favorite things are reading, gymnastics, theatre, and her new room. I'm thinking about making her sleep in the hall until she reads and writes three good papers in the three subjects geography/historiy/government that she blew off so bad today. (She let down the teachers who've worked very hard to help her get focused and do well - she has severe ADHD and is gifted besides as well as lowering the average for her entire class) I'm also thinking about keeping her out of gymnastics this month. I'm also going to make her write apology letters to the teacher, principle, and class she let down. (we attend catholic school, and its a very close group)
Will somebody with experience here please offer me some advice? Shes my oldest, and makes me feel like I don't know anything about parenting.
