I got my first kid crying today. I've had kids crying in my classes before, but just during gym as the result of a collision or minor injury usually. But this kid I made cry all by myself. He wasn't paying attention and was talking, and consistently so. So as a threat, and one I find very effective, I write OUT on the board, and wrote his name underneath. And he was devastated, and sat in miserable silence with tears well in his eyes.
How did it feel, to make a young child cry?
It felt good.
