My favourite class, Minions, has descended into chaos. Last class I had taken the group to the zoo, and all of the difficult behaviours that had surfaced during that field trip between the parents and their children had been brought into my classroom! Happy refused to talk, and Honey continued his monkey- like antics to the point where he lost his dollar. Because of the lack of dollar, Honey was grumpy for the rest of the class, and then he got in a fight with Paddy during the parent presentation! When I was packing up, I turned to say goodbye to Paddy. All of a sudden Paddy started punching his mom, and she smiled about it! “Paddy is not in a very good mood today,” she informed me. Parenting is a different kettle of fish out here.
