Almost tired like Friday when I was teaching.     Mainly ’cause of being last week of classes and … having several folks there with passing or failing a slim margin.

Struggled w/ student who got locked into going through all the steps to calculate equation of best fit again and again… who could not hear me explaining that copying what was on the calculator didn’t answer the question.   Then read a parenting article about a kiddo being so emotional that he couldn’t listen to reason, and that by distracting him with “playing a game” (“find 5 blue things” then “Find 4 yellow things”)   that he regained his composure.

How can I do that with adults?
