Is screaming and yelling the only way to get children to listen or sitdown or to stop fighting?
I'm sure there has to be other ways.
You get so tired of being creative sometimes you know?
You get so tired of all the attitudes.
I have some students that are sooo rude. They talk like sailors and they treat you with no respect. They talk back, they suck their teeth, they look you in your face and tell you "No!"
And I'm sooo nice to them. I give them gifts and prizes and snacks and rewards for evertything.
You leave at the end of the day and you're dragging yourself.
You wake up in the morning and feel like you never slept.
How can such a rewarding job be so draining?
