My heart goes out to those who need help and are trying sincerely to improve their lives. But there are some who are asking the same questions repetitively. Not only are they not learning to take their own steps (the intent of the program), but they are centering my attention on them when I can be helping some of the new-comers. I'm at the point where I'm getting aggravated and wanting to shove a test in front of them and say "sink or swim, you've had plenty of time to get prepared" (a threat gesture). I do take attendance and these people do show up. They just have to understand that I cannot take their hand throughout graduation and through the real world. How can I get these people to become independent thinkers so that they can survive?
