I have moved from fear because of what happened at Newtown to knowing I can increase safety layers. Now I have tools to help me & I feel like I can talk to someone if I have a problem.

Wonderful, relevant training. You inspired me again to 'go that extra mile'. I was going to retire, but I've changed my mind.

The Newtown tragedy has been haunting me every day. We are so much like that school. Today helped me understand how I can make my building more secure. I'm going to do a school vulnerability assessment & also offer to do one for other buildings in our district. Hard to explain but your personal investment in this Don is so clear. Keep sharing & educating.

Be Thankful for Weak-willed Students
posted on January 19, 2015

Two kids commit the exact same bad behavior. One is remorseful and one is not. The one who displays real regret, we feel sorry for him and we want to cut him a break. We'll even go to bat for him, pleading for leniency because after all, "He's sorry for what he's done."

 

Both of the kid's reactions to the bad gives us a glimpse of their current character as well as an idea of how much intervention is required (we don't respond to kids—we intervene with kids).

 

The kid who is not sorry will need stronger and more focused intervention. The priority will be to instill the missing sense of what is right and wrong.

 

The second kid however, because he's sorry, has demonstrated that he knows what is right and wrong but has difficulty choosing what is right and wrong. Therefore, this is less of an issue of malicious intent and more of an issue of being weak willed.
