Nope, you're not doing it all wrong. Kids are this way because parents have become irresponsible and immature. They are having kids younger and younger and will not grow up and be real adults. They still want to party and dress like kids. As I said in a previous response, this is one of the reasons In got out, retired and have absolutely, positively no intention of EVER going back, I'm on year 5 of retirement and don't regret it. I don't know how many more years you have left or if you plan to keep doing it until you are eligible for retirement. If you stay with it, you are a better person than me. If I were 22 or 23 and just starting out now, I could not make it until retirement. Especially since they changed the retirement rules and are forcing everyone to teach longer.
