So my book came... The No-Fault Classroom... and though I love the theory, in trying a No-Fault home I'm finding it difficult to put into practice. I've started with the kids... it works beautifully with my 6yo, but my 4yo is a whole separate personality type... and cooperative does not appear in her discourse. It's shaking my confidence in cooperation... and especially in introducing it into the classroom. I really want things to get better. This is going to take a lot of work on my part... and I don't have a lot of energy for it... I'm done tapped out fellas. Yet, all of the unhappiness and stress around here is working my nerves... I just don't understand why people can't just get along. Why can't we tell when it's something important and when it's not... why can't anyone else in my house be committed to this so that I don't have to do it alone... I just feel overwhelmed by totally revamping communication among four people TOTALLY alone.

So how in the WORLD would I do that for 27 people in a classroom?

Oh yeah... and Happy Valentine's Day. LOL... I'm such a scrooge...

  1. I wish I could post some pearls of wisdom here to help you out. But all I have that I can give is a big ((hug)) if you want it or maybe you are into ((huggles)) either way, you may have those with my blessings and the hope that it will get better, that something will just make it work a at least a little bit easier.
