Would get past your ears
Sigh. I was teaching a student that was inconsistent. Saying, "I don't know" and shutting down. Nothing was working to help her gain confidence. I did what you are not supposed to do and raised my voice. She confessed she felt she was not good enough. She had been comparing herself to the best in the class. Maybe we both broke down and got to the root of our frustrations. Then...
Dad came to the rescue and he turned her attitude completely around and she accelerated very quickly.
