    Maybe if she was actually working on the paper instead of sitting on the couch watching TV, she’d get more sympathy.

    All(of the previous)three commentors have ‘hit the nail on the head’ so all I can do is to praise them in their judgement of Holly.

    Ms. Eliot: If you keep channelling my sons in this fashion, I’m going to have to charge you royalties. Or charge you for stalking them… :)

    At 10 I had a similar experience but my mother and I had taken a family member to the airport on a Sunday and then were going to play tourist in a fairly major city. I told mom that I still had homework, she pointed at the sights as we drove home saying, " Oh look we could have stopped there but someone has homework." “Ooooh that could have been fun.” My homework was done by 6 pm every Friday after that.

    Good for your mom! She taught you a valuable lesson. And you had all weekend to enjoy without worrying about homework.

    Holly is getting a good lesson in life.
    Every decision you make has a cost. Procrastination has a higher cost because the items you delay doing until the last moment have a high interest rate.
    Sad to say, Holly, as a young teenager, probably will not learn from the experience, but will blame everything else in the world for the price she now has to pay for her bad decision. Sadly there is a growing part of our adult society that share
    Holly’s viewpoint. These are the people who expect the government to meet all of their needs and desires instead of working to meet these needs and take responsibilty for their past decisions and actions.
