Walking down the dusty halls of my old job, I always heard the same conversation. "Children have gotten worse." Walking down the dusty halls of my (once) new job, I hear the same thing. I didn't believe it at first, believing children to always have been bad, but now I fully agree. Children, in my opinion, have gotten worse. And they keep getting worse. Every educator has their own reasoning behind it. Ask the veterans and they think it's violence on TV and in video games. Ask the newer teachers and they think it's due to parents. As someone that has grown up watching violence every day, I agree with the parental theory.
It's happened to the best of us. Something upsetting has happened and we go off—we're pulled with our wave of emotions. We say things we don't mean and do things we'd never do with a level head. In these situations, you aren't a level head—and that's okay. I'm not saying it's necessarily a good thing, but as mentioned, it happens. The problem is, sometimes, we go too far. So how can we stop from going overboard? It's not an easy process to admit you're wrong and it's even harder when you're in a moment of passion. It takes dedication and years of working towards a healthy goal. But it's worth it.
