If he's scared of a whip, get him use to it! Don't simply avoid using it! Also Obviously something was going to go wrong, I BET YOU there was many warning signs that this was going to happen. Like he DID not want you on!! Yet you still got on... no offense but you kinda deserved that..... If someone wanted to get on your back.. but your back was sore, or you just werent in the mood but they got on anyways you would shove them off! |
And this whole you need to get back on is BULL!!!
Also, I disagree with the idea that the 'get back on' school of thought is bull. There are too many times when kids don't get back on and it becomes repeat behaviour because they are gettign the desired result. It's called operant conditioning, similar to dog training. If they do something and get a good result, they will keep doing it. Of course there aretimes when this doesn't happen or doesn't apply, but it is a good rule that si you are capable of getting back on, you do; Even if its only for a few minutes.
But kudos to the rest of your post :]
