Open House at Robin School



Notice where the vicious kitty is aiming ... for the bottom line! In the first grade, a little mouse bears your name and every time you are naughty or negligent or messy or overly talkative, mousie gets relegated to a lower rank.



Hopefully knowing that kitty will get you by the time you hit rock bottom will scare you into obedience, but I felt rather torn as I sat on the tiny chair. Half of me was thinking What a great idea! while the other half thought Good grief, don't move and upset the cat!



Thank goodness for higher education! :)

I think the cat may frighten one into behaving!

Might foster an uncontrollable phobia of cats or clothespins later in life. ;)

Yikes! A little extra frightening, I'd say! I'd have a fear of black cats for sure!

That's so cute! What a good idea. That is a terrifying cat.

We use the traffic light approach. Everyone starts on green. Yellow is when you have been spoken to three times about the same behavior, and red is a note home to parents that has to be signed because the behavior just continued. I like the cat idea.

I agree with you, good idea but kind of scary for young ones.
