Jim lives in Hillside. He is a seventh grader at St. Domitilla School.
He is a good boy and helpful, but he is having a hard time completing his homework. His grades are failing.
Mom asks Jim each evening if he has completed his homework. Jim answers that he has finished.
After some time, Mom receives a phone call from Jim’s teacher. He is not doing his homework and must stay after school to do it.
Mom talks to Jim about his disobedience and lying and says, “No more TV until grades improve.”
Jim says he is sorry and after some time, his grades improve.
Mom says, “Five dollars for each ‘A’ you get from now on!”
