The things that I would like to address this term are:
- Ezra's need for attention and help resulting in a complete meltdown into pathetic helplessness. My current plan is to exude confidence in his ability while being too darn busy to help him just this minute.
- Phaedra's recent adoption of the "I hate school" mantra. Current plan is that she has to pay me for every infraction. This chant is demoralizing to the group and harmful. Though she is welcome to think it, she is indeed forbidden to say it. More specific requests and complaints will be considered.
- Sylvie's yelling every single thing she has to say. Current plan is to gently remind her to not yell.
We'll see if I can check these off some list, and then add a few more.
