Consequences of Procrastination
This week, Maisy got her first bad grade. For an academic overachiever, this was a near tragedy. She was supposed to have read a certain number of pages with accompanying book reports (kept track of since school began). She did not read the number required to receive the highest grade. She was disappointed in herself, but I believe it was a good lesson. I've been reminding her of today's deadline for a couple of weeks, but she seemed to pay it no mind until this morning when she realized that today was THE DAY. She got up an hour early and read, and I read to her while she ate breakfast. Too little, too late. Will she learn the consequences of procrastination from this? Let's hope.
