Totally agree, Brittany! I teach a different level than you do, so it looks a bit different with undergrads; however, what I now do is focus on their wellbeing. If a student tells me they’re having a hard time due to x, y, z that has nothing to do with what I’m teaching them, then I tell them to go take care of that FIRST…we can figure out the rest later.
