    Don't get sucked in!!!!

    I teach middle school too, and I feel bad when students cry, because it is usually the ones that you wouldn't expect to. I have found that on occasion there are some kids that can just turn on the waterworks whenever they want, just be careful that you stick to your guns. As long as the punishment is not unreasonable, and it fits the crime, you should not second guess yourself. Show them that you are in charge. I tell my students that tears just don't work with me. Of course, if the child is crying every day, there is another problem somewhere!!!
