Oh man...as someone who works with teens, I'm well aware of...IMMATURITY. We deal with it, though, encouraging them as they move through it. Sometimes the cheerleader. Sometimes the sandpaper. Every now and then, though, I encounter a level of immaturity that surprises me. It's extremely overwhelming...one, because coming up against it is like pulling teeth...two, the support from parents is usually lacking...and three, being in this business long enough, the lessons necessary to overcome it are going to painful for the kiddo and the prospects of the future with such deficits seem SAD.
Ugh. It's been "one of those"...and I think it's going to keep on being "one of those"...Sigh.
