How to Develop More Patience
"When I'm about to lose it, I take a deep breath and remind myself: 'You are a smart human being who can control her emotions.' Then, speaking in a low tone, I offer a few choices to the person—child or adult—who's stressing me out. The deeper my voice, the calmer I feel."
—Belee Nguyen, second-grade teacher in Sacramento
