Caught red handed

Picture was taken yesterday when we were having dinner in a local restaurant.
When YX first started school, I gave him an old notepad for him to write down whatever messages given by his teacher. Instead, he came back with some drawings ! I advised and reminded him that he can only draw during his free times. He nodded in agreement and I continued to encourage him to draw.

Soon, he finished that notepad and requested for a new book. I was happy to give him another one and continued to remind him to draw during his free times.

Recently, he was caught red-handed for drawing during an English class ! Teacher was teaching in front and this boy quietly hid under his desk, DRAWING !

As a mother, I can't ignored this matter and reprimanded him. No choice, I had to take away his notepad as a punishment. *Hope I won't kill his interest *. He was very disappointed and plead with me not to throw away his drawings. Silly boy, of course mummy won't throw away your hard work. Click What I drew in School to see some of his drawings.

Then, today someone commented on my FB status saying I shouldn't take away the notepad because if no notepad, that will forced him to draw in his textbooks or he will find other sources to draw! How true is that.

Hmm..... looks like i will have to do something about it. Boy oh boy............

  3. yeah, it's not right to draw during the class, YX should have kept his promise to draw during his leisure time and not during class..

    1. there's no wrong you took away that notepad but the important thing is to explain and let him understand why you have taken his notepad away from him..

    2. i guess some punishment is appropriate but then you need to talk to him again when returning his notepad couple of days later..

    4. 1. I never expect he will draw during lessons.

      2. Yes, i did explained to him why I took away his notepad. He looked dissapointed.

      3. The only punishment was taking away his notepad. I hope he do understand the dos and don'ts during classes.

      4. Handling kids are not easy..... especially they grew older.

  8. Or can give him just 1 piece of paper to draw per day in school???

    Oh, or you can write a notice at the cover of the notepad to remind him to pay attention in class... such reminders can work for adults, but not sure for kids...
