Hmm, well, all I can say is that I wish I had never thought of becoming a teacher. It has largely been a source of misery. I wish the students I had been teaching had been 'born to wonder, to want, to need to understand everything' - I would have loved that. Unfortunately, they were born to demand that everything should be handed to them on a plate (including the answers to exams!). There was no wonder and no understanding, although plenty of wanting, generally of the 'I want you to go **** yourself'.

Love to you all

Caroline

Yes, that's the problem with too many parents raising their kids as a friend nowadays stead of being an authority figure to them. Tell the nasty brats no on occasion, people.

You're quite right, Kim. They hardly ever hear 'no' or 'that's not acceptable/appropriate'. Too many of them have extraordinarily short attention spans and want instant gratification. It's quite scary, really.
