One memory from the classroom will be with me for a long time. It was probably ten years ago when this happened. I thought I would share it will all of you.
When I used to teach Kindergarten, we ended the good days with a song that lets the kids fly, swing, crawl, and hop around the room. On one particular day, a boy came up in the middle of the flying song and said, "if I really had wings, I would fly to heaven and see my grandpa."
This illustrates one thing very clearly....when a kid seems extra needy or clingy, maybe there are things going on that you don't know about.
