My stepson got marked absent from a class yesterday--he's a senior in high school--because he got mad an stormed out. He said he walked around awhile and cooled off, then went back to class, but his unexcused absence remained unchanged. Fair enough. I have no problem with that.
He has anger issues. He is seeing a counselor on an ongoing basis.
My boyfriend's view is that his son did what the counselor had been suggesting. He didn't blow up at the teacher, he didn't cuss, he didn't make a scene. He walked away till he simmered down, then returned. I can see the truth in that. I wish the counselor could somehow set it up so the teachers understood the strategy and were a little more accepting of it.
On the other hand, my stepson wants to get a job at Wal-Mart, and you all know as well as I do that if he gets mad and storms off while at work, he might as well not go back. Job over. I think it would be worth his dad at least talking to him about that.
