Stealing had not become a concern yet- but now I have a concern about one student in particular and I just think so many of them want attention even if it is highly negative attention. They are being ignored in their homes- I am certain. This is the way family life is now for many. TV and work and meals and everyone goes in their own direction.
I have a friend who teaches elementary students. She complains of the very same thing. Praying you will find steady work and find how to handle the classroom problems.
