Ugh! That kid again. He is so talented, so brilliant, yet so damn stubborn.
That kid. He has all the potential in the world, why won’t he just live up to it?
That kid. He is gifted in so many ways, he breezes through everything that I give him. Why won’t he challenge himself? Why does he back away from anything that is a little out of his comfort zone?
That kid. The other kids in his position love a challenge. They tackle it head on, and come begging for more!
That kid. Is he worthy of this chance he was getting? Should we have given him a second chance?
That kid. What is with his attitude? I try day after day to get him to realize that the only thing that is holding him back is himself. He holds the key to his future. His future can be so bright if he just lets it.
That kid. Stop saying you don’t care! You do! I know you do!
That kid. When will he finally realize what is in front of him? When will he realize that all of this is to make him stronger, more confident, and a better problem solver? It will make him be able to conquer anything!
That kid. I am not going to give up on him, no matter how much he frustrates me! I can’t, I won’t!
That kid. I believe in that kid!
