When you understand them and know when to use them, mathematical formulas are amazing. Just plug in the numbers and voilà! There’s the answer.
There’s a kid at work who’s been having a really hard time listening to anyone. He has no respect for authority and constantly mouths off to me and my co-workers. His parents don’t know what to do about his behavior. Neither do his psychologist or principal. He’s so good when he’s being good. I love this little boy but don’t appreciate being constantly disrespected. I wish there were a formula for fixing the problem.
