A DMK Production
Your son, Archer, turned twelve last month. For a birthday gift his grandparents sent him a new video game system. Archer was playing with his new system on Saturday.
Normally that would not be an issue but you know Archer has a major book report due on Monday and you also know he is prone to procrastinate with his school assignments and so you do prompt him often. You have seen him reading the book, often at your encouragement, but he does seem like he has been on top of this assignment.
You ask Archer about his book report. He tells you it is finished. You ask to see it. He says he finished it at school on Friday and already turned it in. Otherwise you know Archer has no other homework for the weekend so you leave him alone and he continues to play.
On Monday you get an interesting email from Archer's teacher. She says she hopes you are recovering well and says she was saddened to hear of your accident. The teacher says normally she would accept Archer's book report late with a ten point reduction but, considering the circumstances at home, she will gladly accept it by Wednesday with no reduction.
How do you deal with this?
