The cause of this may include, but is not limited to:
- Decline in privileges in direct proportion to the decline of on-time homework.
- Enforcing the house rule of no socializing with friends after dinner on school nights
- requiring family members to attend "family" scripture study
- asking for clean bedrooms and bathrooms before computer and socializing time
- threatening to give away the stupid dog because nobody plays with her. Heck, I could just go ahead and give away the stupid dog and no one would even notice for weeks. - I didn't have to just threaten, you know...
- being unwilling to have further discussion about any of the above topics unless the eye-rolling and attitude ceases.
