  30. 30. His mother has noticed that he has become more irritable and is often tearful, but when she tries to talk to him about this, he tells her to go away.

Do you avoid thinking about how other people might feel if you say or do hurtful things to them? Ask your student these questions. Teacher-Advisers as Second Parents
