Truly I just need to vent to place where maybe some will understand and feel my pain. First off I want to say my admin is 100% behind me and does what she can when she can. I have a very very immature student in my class. From the very beginning he cried about every little thing. One day at the beginning of school I wouldn't hold his hand on the way to lunch. He cried. We went to pep rally at the high school, he cried about his Mom leaving. He cries about not being line leader. He cries because he doesn't want to do Lexia, he cries because he wants to do Lexia. He cries, cries, cries all,the time. There hasn't been a day that he has been in school he hasn't cried about something. When he cries it's not just a little whimper, it's an all out cry so loud that teachers down the hallway can hear him from my room. I have tried ignoring him. I have tried being mean. I have tried being nice. I have tried EVERYTHING! This afternoon he cried from 1:30 until 3 then he wouldn't leave to go home. So I left him in the class and took the rest of the class out to meet their parents. I wanted his mom to have to come in and talk to me. Unfortunately one of the aides brought him out. I'm just so frustrated with this student. It is making me really not want to go to work. I dread going to school. He is making my class CRAZY! We can't get anything done, without something upsetting him. Then I get upset. I try really hard not to take it out on the other kids but it does happen that my frustration spills over. Especially when he has cried for two or three hours. Any advice, hugs or drinks would be appreciated! BTW mom is NO help! NONE!
