Donald needs an intervention. He needs a fourth grade teacher with a death stare to stand beside him all day long and give him the look whenever he needs it. And he needs it a lot. Can someone please get him a fourth grade teacher of his very own?

  1. She saw that boy at her son’s graduation party out on the lawn shoving his girlfriend; pushing her against the barn door. Unfortunately for him she was still raw from her own experience living with a husband who was abusive. Her x-husband make that. He always excused his obnoxious savagery because “it only happens every five years!” What? Are you crazy? It still happens. What finally pushed her over the edge and into telling him she wanted a divorce was the last time he choked her. She only blacked out for a nanosecond. But still…. She could have been murdered. The next morning when she awoke her upper lip was covered in cold sores. Now that she saw one of her son’s classmates being violent with his girlfriend she simply lost it. She ran out and yelled at him. She read him the riot act in front of everyone. Then she told his girlfriend she didn’t have to put up with that kind of a boy and shouldn’t. Probably didn’t achieve anything positive in the long run.

  2. Intervention, the catalyst for viable adjustment, is necessary to induce corrective action. Sometimes wrong turns are made at forks in the road. Without an intervention, one can be lost forever. At times some dark secrets must be revealed so an intervention can be effective. The revelation is well worth it.
