The other day, a student came to me. I had just been thinking earlier in the day that we had finally pretty much conquered her bad habit of tattling. Apparently not. Here’s how our conversation went.
Student: Mrs. Morford, Bobby (Name was changed.) said he’s going to bring a gun to school.
Mrs. Morford: When did he say that? (Bobby doesn’t hardly talk and is very reserved in class, but has a very vivid imagination when playing with other students.)
Student: LAST YEAR!
I guess we’ll have to keep working!
