"I dont care, its boring..." "Yeh, I know I did so what..." "Give me a det then..." "He asked for it...." I can deal with all of these, but when I'm faced with these two below, I dont know why but I cant deal with it and I'm tearing my hair out... "I wasn't even doing anything!" "Ah yeh sir, its just me isn't it!' Its the lack of responsibility for own behaviour arguments I can not stand. I am forever getting drawn into yes you did, no I didn't dialogue, and I just cant help myself. I guess the question I'm asking is how do people deal with this scenario? Are there any conversation enders that fit the bill when a student refuses to accept any responsibility for their behaviour? I feel like I get challenged every single time I reprimand someone. Why do they never accept their punishment? Is this a symptom of something I'm doing wrong. I cant stand being challenged.
