Good point

Me: What color were you on the behavior chart today, Manny?
Manny: Yellow.
Me: What are you going to do tomorrow?
Manny: Stay on green.
Me: Right, but how? What do you have to do?
Manny: Not choke people.


Me: Okay, you're writing about bees. What else can you say besides "I like bees"?
Perezoso: ....
Me: Well, how about writing what it looks like? "Bees are..."
Perezoso: Bees are... the shape... of insects.

I love your, "Kids say the darndest things" posts so much.

Maybe Manny needs an incentive chart so you can catch him being good during the day.

Instead of focusing on not choking people, he can focus on the positive behavior of keeping his hands to himself.

During the day you can watch for times that he keeps his hands to himself and then he gets to make a mark on the personalized chart on his desk.

Then when the chart is full, he gets a pre-decided reward.

Check out for some free charts. My kids love them.

(And I agree with the comment above...your posts like that are too funny!)

Churly, they're among my favorites too. The daily routine posts are more a duty for future reference than anything interesting, and some of the personal stuff gets hard to read. It's nice to hear some light stuff.

Anon, thanks for the link and compliment.

Oh, so THAT's how you stay on green! I'm going to try not choking people at work this week, and see if the boss notices!
