Man I had a horrible end to the week. Yesterday I had 2 6th graders get in a fight right in the middle of class out of the blue. Apparently they have been calling each other names etc and it just peaked its head during my class so I had to break that fight up. Then I have another 6 th grade boy today who has a ton of issues that his dad and stepmom are refusing to deal with. He's been mutilating himself in my class, using his pencil and cutting his ARM w it, today using a stapler to put holes in it, when I took everything away he was using his nails. I've reported it to the vice principal already but today I marched down to guidance and went off. I'm sorry but nobody is doing anything or telling me how to handle this. It's causing. Huge problem in my class Nd its obvious something needs to be done more. You know what they told me, to talk to him and offer him a reward if he can control himself everyday. It's just for attention he's doing it...I did talk to the kid and he is refusing that he needs any help . I think I'm just gonna be making a call into child services if it happens again.
So I went shopping after work and bought new curtains for the living room and towels for the bathroom. Shopping always helps the stress lol.
