It doesn’t matter who we are, we are going to run into a situation where we are up against a force that is just too much for us to handle.

Even if you feel as if you’re in a very good situation, you need to prepare yourself for that inevitability. Some people who feel as if they are in a solid situation are teachers who teach young children. Many of them will tell you, however, that it doesn’t take long for them to learn that they still need to learn a thing or two. That was the case with this teacher, and a student who had an answer that she couldn’t deny.
