Just shortly after they were taken, though, shit hit the fan. Then the fan flung the shit everywhere causing a big mess. I have never before physically felt my blood pressure rise, or physically felt it be that high and I hope I never do again. There are some children in this world that do not know how to behave, have no discipline, and have no respect. Until now I never understood why some kids were sent to military schools in the middle of the night without warning. Now I get it. Whether it’s the fault of the parent or just how the kid is… some kids need discipline in a military fashion in order to shape the hell up.
I took the advice of my aunt and started sending the kids outside with work to do, and if they didn’t do it, I’d give them a low mark. Well, the work and the low marks are still not enough to encourage them to behave. Now it’s a game and they even prefer to go outside. So glad they enjoy my lessons (sarcasm). I have come to the realization that children need discipline not just from school but from home, too. Without one or the other, they won’t behave. It’s been a year and a half here and I’m out of ideas and almost out of patience.
