Many situations arise in our lives that require us to look at a problem from a different direction or angle. We may think we always know the answer and blame the problem on others when it is really us who need to analyze the situation and seek the answer. This scenario has a root problem that needs to be addressed. The root problem is with Jason. Although he is a very smart boy and a good student, he fails to see the problem in this scenario. He is blaming the fact that he is about to fail a class on the teacher. The teacher is simply looking at the attendance record and grading Jason based on his lab work and attendance. Jason is responsible for the conflict arising because he is getting angry and complaining to the Dean about something that is actually his own fault. Because he didn’t want to stay late on Friday night, he left class early and never made up the lab work. This caused him to miss all of the assigned labs that are required for him to pass the class.

Instead of complaining to the Dean about how the teacher is being unfair, he should focus on the work that he has missed and see if he can make it up in time before the end of the quarter. The Dean may listen to Jason’s complaints, but also see the
