Depressed and struggle
I mentioned here that I have an autistic student. Sometimes he is good mood and sometimes very bad mood. When he is in bad mood, he will throw tantrum during my lesson, he will make a lot of noise, stamp his feet and say things like: "I will fail my exam and die, die die die!!!". It is a struggle for me, I tried to use soft and hard approach but it doesn't work either, I feel very depressed each time after his lesson when he doesn't behave. I thought I was able to handle it, I am not frustrated but just felt depressed. Depressed because no matter what approach I used, he just doesn't listen to me. So I read back my post here and rethink about what I said. The many comments left by you guys, my blogger friends, encouraged me to move on. I was thinking if I give up and don't help him, who will help him. Moreover, he is rather intelligent especially in Mathematics, so he is still teachable. I hope I will hang on there.
