Habit 7 - Sharpen the Saw
Why do you think renewing yourself regularly is a good life habit to have?
James just moved from B.C. to a school in Ontario. As a grade 8 student, moving half way through a school year, he's having a hard time adjusting to all this change. He feels the reasons for his move are private, and he's not comfortable discussing them with anyone, but people keep asking about it. He feels like after the first two weeks in his new class he doesn't want to be friends with anyone. His teacher, along with the work being assigned, seems so different from what he was doing out west. James is becoming very stressed out. Just recently, he verbally abused his bus driver on his way to school and was given a suspension.
James is a grade 8 student that moved half way through the school year. He is stressed and everything the new school does is a lot different from his old school. Just recently, he verbally abused his bus driver.
A strategy James could do to cope with what's happening is talking to someone who can help him. Keeping your feeling inside when your feeling hurt is not good for your health.
