I'm not looking for advice on my specific situation, but I am wondering about the young people I teach. On Monday we had a local charity come into the school to speak to the children and raise awareness of a specific issue (which is pertinent to them - obviously won't say which one!) but as part of this all the students were given a bag for life containing information but also a few trinkets like pens, a refillable drinking bottle post it notes, sweets and stickers. Most of it reasonably useful. The students were given it and most were fine of course - but for some, their first instinct was to lob it across the room in outrage - I'm not kidding, screwed up noses in disgust and hurled away in disgust. Why? If you don't want something you don't do that, do you?
