Two of my students were sen tto the office today and when I got there one was crying.
As I got him ready for the bus I talked to him and said I already heard what had happened and we didn't need to talk about it tomorrow.
Me: "Don't you worry about it. Tomorrow's a brand new day."
Boy:"Yeah! It's like a brand new life!"
For some reason this was so sweet to me. His eyes were red and seconds ago tears were running down his face but the idea that he could start fresh tomorrow instantly encouraged him. Sometimes it really is that simple.
