My 12 year old forged my name
Help! My 12 yr old (13 in a couple of weeks) came to me last night with a confession that she had forged my name on a discliplinary document from school. She added that it happened several weeks ago and had been bothered about it ever since. I thanked her for finally telling me the truth and questioned her motives. I also reassured her that she shouldn't ever be afraid to tell the truth. Now, I'm stuck with deciding on a punishment (if any). She seemed to think that the guilt she had been dealing with for weeks was agonizing punishment enough. What do you think? Critique / Comments / Advice? MOST WELCOME!
