Day 134 of 365: Behaviour Management

The following is a scenario this book does NOT give the answer to:

  • How to respond to an 8-year-old child who tells you "I'm not a slave!" when you announce to the class that it's time to tidy up.
I'm fielding any suggestions on this one...

Oh, and no, punting them across a football field is NOT an option.

This is why I could not work with children.. if punting them is not an option I am out! ;)

Oh, ugh.

Here's what I was told to do. Follow these (inane) steps.

1. I notice you're not tidying up.

2. In this class, we tidy up.

3. You need to tidy up.

4. Tidy up, you %$"!* lazy child!
