    in 3rd grade I had to turn in a "friendly" letter (e.g. something to a relative or pen pal), a "business letter" (e.g. reporting a bad result with a commercial product) and a "request letter" (e.g. asking for information or sending a news item to a paper or radio or television station).

    The teacher, whose memory I treasure to this day,
    counted off for poor spelling (including the wrong homonym even if you spelled that correctly), for punctuation errors, for going past the red-line margins on the paper, for not skipping the right number of lines between the elements of the letter,
    and for illegibility.

    Let your neighbor's kid deal with that -- the whining will reach epic proportions.
