Funny: the kids I have seen really responding to things other kids say or do claimed they don't care what others say.
One student mentioned he had aroblem with someone but he didn't have enough courage to say anything to solve it.
One student told us her dad says if you keep mean feelings in your heart instead of solving the problem, it is like keeping s poison in your heart.
- instead of reacting, just give a compliment back and walk away
- apologize and ask if you can do anything to make it better
- find a way to solve the problem.....like make a chart!
Things that came up in our discussion today:
Someone laughs at you when you make a mistake in math?
What if someone buds in when you are trying to solve a problem with someone?
What if someone pushes you in line and isn't paying attention?
