Every year, my schools' population of mentally unstable students increases. A lot of them are getting counseling services, however, if the parent/guardian denies this service, there is nothing we can do. How do you reach kids like this? I've tried so many different techniques and some are still acting out, disrupting the learning environment, etc. . .Many people say to ignore students like that and focus on the ones who you can help. I can't do this! What do you suggest?
