Goddamn I'm pumped for my new job. Just not pumped for an 8AM start .

I remember the last job I tried to go to (which completely fell through back in March), they told me I was starting Monday. I went in with no sleep at all and I got there and they had no idea why the hell I was there . They told me it would take a few weeks to get things sorted, and in the end, didn't get that job.

Yikes. I like the idea of Markov being the number. Liked him a bit. "Mark-it-ov the List"

I watched the first episode of Westworld. Not getting a promising feeling like I had for other HBO shows (Boardwalk Empire and GoT)

I hated the switch to the "go to sleep earlier, wake up earlier in a better mood" schedule when I got my first job after college two years ago.

Still hate it.


Anyway, congrats on the job! Glad it worked out for you in the end

I work as a probation officer, and I deal with adults who do not listen, who yell at ya, and who I have to fuss at... All day long....

But I have a 9 year old at home and he's killing me. He doesn't listen, is disrespectful, and nothing I've tried works. I would never want to be a teacher of kids. Geeze!

Ive been a camp counselor the past two summers. You just have to be patient with them and provide incentives/rewards for good things they do, and they will listen to you

If you're feeling 6 year olds, sounds like youve got bigger issues than mentally preparing.

Studies show that children learn better with more blood rushing to their head. Doctors and psychiatrists recommend hanging them upside down by their feet and then teaching them things since no blood is wasted in places like the legs or torso. If he starts to turn purple that means he's learning a lot and you're in good shape. Also remember that their bites can be venomous so don't put your hand near his mouth.

I'm a doctor and can confirm this works.

I stayed at a Holiday Inn Express back in March, so i'd like to add once they're purple, shake them vigorously, it gets all the air bubbles out of trapped areas for a little bit extra blood to soak down into the head region there.

It's definitely a show that needs some digestion in between each episode. At least for me...I enjoy the weekly watching.

Personally, I think it's one of the best new shows I've watched in a long time. I'm obsessed.

I was an Elementary Education major and student taught in 2nd grade, it was terrible. I subbed for a day in 1st grade and lost my mind. I had a conversation yesterday about how Kindergarten teachers deserve millions of dollars.

I ended up teaching middle school (12-14 year olds) for 8 years and just recently left the classroom. My district created a position for me, which is awesome, so now I'm responsible for teaching the teachers all over the district how to use technology effectively in their classrooms.

That being said, the same philosophy behind teaching 6 year olds applies to 14 year olds and applies to 65 year olds.

Figure out what they currently know about the topic and something they are interested in. Make some insane connection (the more insane the better) between what they are interested in and what you are teaching them. After giving them some info, give them some options of ways to use the information, people are always more willing to do work when you make it seem like they decided they wanted to do it. Putting an incentive at the end is always a great idea, there are tons of educational based games that kids love and you could probably find one based on whatever you are teaching them.

I haven't tried hanging people upside down, but I'd love to try it out on some of the teachers I deal with now. Some of them are getting close to "room full of kindergarteners" level of annoying.

Sounds like you should have him partake in "take your child to work day" next year. Go full on scared straight.

I think it's episode 6 that completely makes the season worth watching. It's a great show, I love it.

You're missing out.

It's also a great attitude adjuster if they're acting out. Just flip them and hang them from a ceiling fan (works best if they're small or your fan is very securely bolted to the ceiling) and turn it on a low setting.

Generally it works best if the parents aren't there because they're often not trained in child development like I am and they don't trust the process. They get upset and want to turn it to the max speed but I always try to convince them to be patient.

Alternatively there's the sock full of quarters method... but who has that many quarters lying around?

Im 19 and have thinning hair (but it may be due to me wearing a hat most of the time), how do you think I feel.
