The Golden Rule… Treat others as you would like to be treated, or something close is pretty basic.

I don’t appreciate tattling just to get another child in trouble.  If someone is in danger, that’s a different cup of tea, but telling on someone just to get them in trouble, or worse, to get attention for yourself isn’t tolerated.

If you have a problem with someone, tell them.  Use your words.  Try to work it out.  Use an ‘I message’…

These are some of the basic tenants in my (and probably most) classrooms.

I’d like to propose adults do what I ask my kindergartners to do.  Grow up. Act your age, not your shoe size.  Actually that’s an insult to many of my sprouts… they know better.

That’s it!  I’m done… off my soap box!  Thanks for letting me get that off my chest.

Happy Friday Eve everyone!
