Keeping it “in house”

Everyone is bound to have a bad day or a rough moment. Kids have tantrums, students don’t stay on task and adults sometimes get curt.The challenge is to know when to keep these “off” moments in house…in other words, help our kids, students and colleagues maintain dignity by refraining from sharing with the world: the grocery store melt down from a hungry kid, the snide comment from a tired colleague, or the lack of quality homework from a hormonal tween. I always hope others will ignore my faulty moments. How do I return the favor by keeping small infractions “in house?”
