>I could tell right away that M’s day was shot. He hadn’t even entered the school yet. What happened? He left his back pack in the van, and his sister grabbed him to try to get him to stop. This is the wrong thing to do with M. I told her that I would be getting a call from the school before noon.
Sure enough the call came. M tore apart the resource room at the school. Then at recess started threatening his classmates. So he got in school suspension for the remainder of the day. M is a very active child and can’t sit still for more than a few seconds, and they took away his recess.
I understand consequences, but wouldn’t it be better to burn off the energy that builds up rather than keep it in?
