What do you all do when all of a sudden a kid (almost always a girl) becomes upset or is crying about some personal issue? This happens every once in a while and it's pretty weird. I guess they're carrying around a lot of drama and then it overflows when triggered by something. What I usually do is just let them step outside alone or with a friend when they request it. I ask them if they're ok or if they want to see their counselor. This is the professional approach, but given all the warm and fuzzy emphasis at my school I began to wonder if I'm supposed to get involved in calming them down. But I know they're not going to tell me the problem, and I'm also not their therapist. What do you do? I also imagine there may be a difference if you're a man or a woman, with women being more nurturing in their approach.
