Working With Discouraged Adolescents is another excellent post from Marvin Marshall’s Discipline Without Stress blog.
It’s filled with excellent advice. I find it’s difficult, if not impossible, to act on his suggestions all the time — after all, I’m only human. However, I think it’s more of a question for me of: Do I tend to follow his advice on being positive, empathetic, and offering choices to students more often than not?
I like to think my accurate answer is yes.
