My 8 years old panda thinks that she’s a teenager or something. Ever since having my second panda baby, she’s been acting out at school. Her grades dropped (not failing; thank goodness), more notes from the teacher saying she’s not using her time wisely for school work, and just prefers to socialize during study time.
I’m not sure what I should do. Should I spank her like my parents did me? Should I make her kneel on rice (form of Asian parenting punishment)? Should I ground her? What should I do? What would be the most effective?
If I view this differently, is this her call for more attention? She’s wanting more attention because all attention is on baby brother panda? I was once jealous when my brother was born. There’s a picture of me squirting milk at him apparently instead of feeding him.
At the end of the day, I must not forget to kiss her goodnight and tell her I love her. Man, she’s growing up to fast and I sit remind myself to give her more attention too.
