Control issues


Question: What are some good tips on how to handle students who highly enjoy minding everyone's business but their own?

Three school days only since winter break and I'm ready for another two weeks off.

If I don't get to that problem, let it go.
          If I don't teach them that procedure, let it go.
                    If I haven't succeeded at making a positive connection, let it go.

Let it go, let it go, let it go.
