LOL maybe that's too simple of an answer though.
I really know nothing about this kid or his family.

"Jeff Bliss is 18. His classmates are 15.
He was complaining that some students have 3 days to complete an assignment, but his class has 2 days.

His mother condones and supports his behavior. "

If that doesn't fit the profile of a spoiled, little brat, I dunno what does. The mother sounds like a jellyfish. I wonder if she's a single parent. She probably thinks that it's great that she's being supportive of him then cries at night out of fear over the monster her negligence created.

I've got another puzzle for you
Oompa Loompa doompadee dee
If you are wise you will listen to me
Who do you blame when your kid is a brat
Pampered and spoiled like a Siamese cat?
Blaming the kids is a lion of shame
You know exactly who's to blame:
The mother and the father!
Oompa Loompa doompadee dah
If you're not spoiled then you will go far
You will live in happiness too

I've been reading about this case on breaks today. I keep learning more about the case because it is relevant to me.

Jeff Bliss is 18. His classmates are 15.
He was complaining that some students have 3 days to complete an assignment, but his class has 2 days.

His mother condones and supports his behavior.

Ha!
The mother weighs in saying, "he did not loose control, he kept himself composed, and stayed on the issue, and therefore..."

Seriously? Yelling at a teacher to me is loosing control.

Gerry -- haha yea probably to some degree. I just live in a world that courts order children like him into treatment, and they have to have a label within the first hour of services.

I basically have to over think a lot of situations. I work in a Day Treatment facility, were this sort of behavior is considered contempt of court. This kid thinks packets suck, but I guarantee he would change his attitude in an alternative school setting -- they get lessons scrolled across to them on a computer.

@ elkingo - what you say makes sense, but is it possible you're over thinking it? Isn't it just as likely he's a spoiled little snot who throws tantrums and gets his way?

I am merely suggesting that this kid suffers from a problem with authority. There is a history of that evident. This outburst is not appropriate, and is maladaptive.

If he has a problem with how a teacher conducts her class, he should go through the proper channels and not in a classroom. His parents should be involved in a Parent - Teacher Association (PTA), he should file a complaint with the principal first, and the Board of Education (BOE) secondly.

I don't really care how many people support him, what he did was wrong. If the teacher is wrong, then that does not justify his actions. He was disrespectful, end of story.

I for one don't like the idea of living in a nation that wants and encourages youth to be defiant in everything they encounter. If you don't like something, fine. Work appropriately to change it.

Criteria B - caused him significant impairment to complete academic work -- he was removed from a classroom, thus he meets criteria B.

Criteria C - He does not seem to be psychotic, nor does he seem to have a mood issue. Although, I did not conduct a formal clinical interview, I am merely suggesting ODD as a possibility.

Criteria D - also, and for the same reasons as Criteria C, I can only make assumptions.

I suggest ODD because we see several criteria displayed:

He lost his temper (as displayed by an outburst), He argues with an adult (first by refusal to do his packet, and second by not leaving the classroom), defiance in adult request for him to leave the room (he did not leave, instead stayed and argued), deliberately annoys others (the rest of the class was disrupted), blames others (it is the teacher's fault he "had an outburst"). If we assume that the previous drop out was related to similar consequences, we have a basis for arguing 6 month history -- however this is just a guess on my part. (I did read about the story before making my initial post.)

Also Mr. Orange, you need to consider facts:

1. This kid dropped out on his own accord before.
1.a. What about state laws that require him to get an education? Why was he not placed on truancy charges?

2. We do not see the event that lead to this outburst.
2.a. He was given a packet? (Not a reason to have an outburst.)
2.b. Did his teacher say anything that would instigate his actions? We do not know.
2.c. What are his current grades?

3. Is it appropriate to express discontent in the classroom?
3.a. Expressing discontent with a curriculum has nothing to do with the teacher, the Board of Education dictates lessons.
3.b. Arguing with a teacher is not appropriate.
3.c. Disrupting the rest of the class is not appropriate.


4. His statements are lyrical in nature. -- this indicates he "planned" to be disruptive in defiance.

MrOrange, I am glad you think we should live in a world where it is acceptable behavior for children to stand up in a classroom and disrespect his teacher for whatever reason, without first hearing her side of the story, and only based on a few moments of his statements -- whether they are true statements or not is a moot point.

It simply is not normal behavior to be disruptive to an entire classroom because you disagree with a teacher's methods.

I do like it when children need help. The fact that I was celebrating with beer seems to elude your comprehension. " labeled someone for the rest of his life" Seriously? If everyone thinks my opinion is a professional life label when I have a beer buzz, then there are more serious problems to consider.

i'm sorry where is the guess part in this? might be my lack of language skills but i don't see it?

"Typical Oppositional Defiant Disorder punk thinking he is smarter than the adults. I see it all the time."

"You say that a kid like that is a "cash cow" for me" ...No you did.
""I like it though, it means job security for me.""

as for DMS 4 and your other argument: yeah.. as this thread might indicate, not everybody here thinks this kid is "maladjusted" infact he's gathering some suport behind him.

Basicaly all i read is personal opinion of how things ought to be according to you, and on the basis of that you just labeled someone for the rest of his life. but hey.. it pay's the bills right.

(cont)

All that I am lacking is solid evidence that the behavior lasted for 6 months. However, like I said before, I was merely speculating as to a diagnosis.
Plus, last night I was celebrating with a beer. Lol


You say that a kid like that is a "cash cow" for me. I find that hilarious that you would resort to ad hominem. I am salary.. it really matters not to me how many kids I see, or how long I see them. Just so that I have some kids to see, and am able to help them adjust to different things (like this sort of behavior) and learn some coping skills.

(continued)

We live in a society that perpetuates this sort of behavior. There is no punishment for this sort of behavior, and the kid is getting what he wants for his behavior - attention and praise.

Standing up and yelling at people or making them the butt of a joke is not how "normal" people deal with problems. How do you think this type of coping skill would go over in other situations? Court? Job? Family life? My guess is pretty poorly. However, everyone is jumping on the "praise the kid; schools suck" bandwagon. Because that is what need more of, right? Children and adolescents that can tell a teacher they suck, while we chuckle about it.

Also, ODD merely means defiant and oppositional, not unruly. Check out the DSM IV criteria here. All that I am lacking is solid evidence th

@Mr. Orange -

I was making a guess to a diagnosis, not providing a formal one. This kid dropped out once before, and his parents allowed it. Where are they? They condone this behavior?

He comes back to school, and instead of discussing a complaint about something like a normal, well adapted person - he jumps to the front of the class, makes a loud disruptive statement, lyrically mind you, before getting louder and louder. You don't think any of that is maladaptive?

So what if his teacher is wrong? That does not make his actions correct. He handled his problems in a very disrespectful manner, and disrupted the entire class, and undermined any authority the teacher has.

Why are they laughing instead of applauding? People don't learn from being given packets of assignments rather than being taught by the teacher. That woman sounded like she didn't give a damn, and if she doesn't teach, and does in fact just give out assignment packets, there's no point in her even being there, they could just leave the packets on the front desk.

@elkingo

You are the perfect example of what's wrong with therapist these day's you: "diagnosed" and labeled your cashcow in 3 minutes. Whilst bieng completely unable to deal with your own addiction.

A: he's a bit tame for a ODD don't ya think?
B: could there be any other reason/ motivation for his behaviour?

Help me out here. I am completely serious: what is a "packet" in this context?

Apparently it's from a set of printed self-directed lessons so the teacher can sit on her fat, lazy butt and surf the Internet or read a magazine while the students try to teach the material to themselves.

A "packet" will contain a list of reading material. Then written questions to consider and possibly essay assignments. Other interactive assignments such as "Match the name to the object" or whatever.

Lazy teachers use them because they can just copy the packet year after year and not really bother teaching at all.

The teacher is on paid leave during the investigation, and Jeff does not face any disciplinary action.

Here's an update
