I think that Tad is doing the wrong thing! He should be living everyday like its his last because that way Yvonne will remember him as a sweet loving brother but now she will probably remember him as a mean controlling older brother!!
I would want them to love me because when I die, they will think of me as a good person. I don't think Tad's strategy is not good because Yvonne will only remember the bad memories. I would rather have you be nice, so we can enjoy this time while we have it.
I do not agree with Tad's strategy that Tad is doing. If he does not die yet then what kind of relationship is he setting for the future. It is true that he may die but when or if he does what will his sister think of him or their relationship. When you do good you feel good so that is what her should do for her.
I don’t agree with the strategy Tad is using. I don’t agree with it because Yvonne his younger sister cares about Tad and she should feel sad if her brother dies. It’s a natural thing for someone who cares about another person, to feel bad when they die. That is because that person who died is apart of someone’s life. Like Tad is apart of Yvonne’s. Tad would be giving Yvonne a gift even if he didn’t have a long life. That is because Yvonne got to have the love her older brother gave her.
I do not agree with Tad's strategy of not getting close to his sister. I think he should be more optomistic about his cancer. I don't think his sister really enjoys getting yelled at and it doesn't serve Tad anygood either. But if Tad is nice to his sister then they would most likely both get something out of it. Plus, nothing bad is ever going to happen if they are both nice to each other.
I don't think that it is a very good strategy. I'd be nice to people. That way, if I were to die, people were remember me for always being kind. Not for being rude.
I do not agree to Tad's strategy because Yvonne looks up to him as her leader. Yvonne loves Tad. She also loves it when Tad gives her appreciation. Tad doesn't realize that, though. However, it is very nice that he is being mean to her so that when he dies she won't feel so upset. I think Tad was being to doubtful about himself. Being nice by being mean isn't that much of a kind move to make.I do not think that you should be mean so we won't be so attatched to you. You should be confident in yourself that you are going to live a long, joyful life.
No. I would be nice to someone because I would want them to remember me. I would want them to remember me for who I was the kind of person I was. I wouldn't want them to be so sad tho because if god didn't make me to last then that's how it goes that's what destiny is. And just like tuck you can't pick out the part in life that you don't like. If something doesn't go your then learn from the experience and never give up. So no the kind of personality I have would not change because I wouldn't want them to be attached to me and I'm sure people would agree 100% with me.
I don't think that Tad should use this strategy because then if he does die then him and his sister wouldn't have never been close and they wouldn't have had any good times together. I don't think that you should be mean for the rest of the school year because now we are coming close to the end of the school year so now a lot of the fun things are starting to happen so then if you are mean they wouldn't be as fun. Also because then we would leave off the end of the school year with you being mean and It doesn't seem like a mean personality would fit someone like Mr.B.
Personally, I don't agree with this situation for many reasons. The first one is that I'm pretty sure that if tad dies, yiovonne( or however you spell it) will be very upset and distraught- even if they don't have the closest bond, it's her brother for crying out loud! Anyways, another reason that I don't agree with tads method is that if he thinks that he may not live any longer, he should spend as much time with his sister as possible before you know he passes away. If I were her, I would probably be even more upset because if she hasn't really formed a bond with her brother, she'll regret that she didn't and might get more overworked about how she didn't truly know her own brother. And what's this about being mean to us for the rest of the school year so we don't get to "attached" to you? Not cool bro. I don't think you should be mean to us for the rest of the school year because its child abuse and kinda illegal. Also it's only April 29 and school doesn't end to the end of June- practically 2 months. Nobody wants to have mr. Bunel be mean to them for 60 days( including weekends) it's just never been done- well it might've but nobody has lived to tell the tale. They're probably all hidden in the basement of the school for however long you've been teaching. I feel bad for them. And don't you want us to get attached to you so that we come back and visit instead of sitting in the basement. If you don't have any visitors next year your students won't have the experience of old people telling you what mr Bunel has taught us. This blog really didn't make sense but I didn't really think at all as I was writing. I just read it all and thought it was pretty funny though. Also I just wanted to say also. So bye.
I think in a way it might've been a good strategy when the chances were really slim but now that he is okay it would be a rather sick thing to do. he is just looking out for Yvvonne and trying to do what is best for her which would be very selfless but it is a very sad thing to think.
I think that Tad is looking at this in the wrong way. I think that he should love Yvonne his little sister because the longer that she has with her the more they can bond. If Tad did die, I think that Yvonne would be happier thinking that she loved her brother so much than that she never really knew him or liked him because he was mean to her. I know Tad thinks that Yvonne was his replacement if he did not live through that whole cancer thing, but I am sure that their parents did not mean that. I do not think that you should be mean to us for the rest of the year because of the reason that I just said.
I think that being mean to your sister so that you don't get attached is kinda mean and unfair. At the same time it is coming out of his heart because he doesn't want her to get attached along with him. It's unfair to his little sister because she has never done anything to deserve that from Tad. He doesn't have to be nasty towards Yvonne because she would still miss him at the bottom of her heart. But in case he does pass away then I know that it would be tough for her to deal with her brother passing. She would still be upset but not as much to see his harsh words go with him.
I completley disagree with tads strategy because if i was in tads shoes i would want everybody to love me. so when i died i could no that even thought i didnt live that long. i did a good job in life
i thik that his tactic is wronge and that you shouldnt be mean to us because we will have to say goodbye to you i think if we have a good time then when it is time to leave we will be sad, but we will have had a good time and not regret anything. it is the same with Tad i thinkk that if he is mean to his sister then when he dies then his sister first of all will feel even worst because sdhe willl probably think that she did something wronge and that Tad died hating her, but if he is nice to her of corse she will be very sad because it is her brother, but she will feel like tyhey had a good connection and that he died thinking of her in a good way loving her. i do not argee with his tactic and i think you should not be mean to us for the rest of the school year.
I get this strtegy, but I don't know if I agree with it because even if we were to miss you, if you weren't mean, we'd have more fun along the way. We might learn new lessons easier if your not screaming at us and we will pay more attention if you don't teach it to us meanly. It's all about the journey suppossedly. What we take from it and even if we miss you it'll be worth because of all the valueble messages we gathered.
I think that Tad is being considerate and is thinking about Yvonne but his strategy is still rude to Yvonne. I bet Yvonne doesnt want to be pushed around. If Tad does die, Yvonne will still be heartbroken about Tad. Tad is Yvonne's brother. No matter how attatched he is to Yvonne the result will be the same. I think that Tad's strategy is rude and if he does die Yvonne would be sad no matter what.
