I've taught for 10 years, 5 of them in one of the toughest schools in the lower mainland. Chairs thrown, lockdown mode, crazy maniacal children upsets. I can handle all those situations and even help them improve. But my own kid? I can't "cure".
Maybe he knows me so well, he just knows what buttons to push. The attachment apparantly is better than I thought.
I'm a teacher, I've been trained in this! I have read hundreds of discipline and child development psychology books. How can this happen????
