I work in the primary wing with K, 1st and 2nd grade. OMG, there ALWAYS seems to be someone crying from being reprimanded. Since I have the luck of being one door down from our school primary discipline room, many of them pass me. Today alone, I counted 34 students! 34! In the breakroom teachers gripe daily and I hear numerous stories that begin with, "Yeah, I made so-and-so cry because s/he did..." My students however, rarely cry. I have two boys, one who teases and one who is very immature, that if I talk to them firmly and tell them I am dissapointed in them, their eyes well up and they need tissues, but they don't outright hollar and sob. Are some classes just more mature than others? My first two years teaching and last year, I had at least 2 - 3 kids cry a day when reprimanded.
