Reading again as an adult and as an educator who works with at risk children I was horrified. The story is a memoir written by a special ed teacher. She clearly wants to be praised and lauded for her amazing breakthrough with Sheila but all I could think was that Sheila needed to be put into foster care. She was clearl ...more

I liked the story, however, the teacher/author, Hayden annoyed me. I felt she made herself into a hero, and very few teachers could be like her and en ...more
I liked this book. My rating was low but that doesn't mean it's a bad book because it's not. It's just because I've read other of her stories that touched me even more than this one. Overall, I had a great time reading it.
Torey Hayden was one of the authors that made me get into reading and psychology. I love her books and they will always have a special place in my heart. I love reading about how she deals with the kids and adults and also about their problematic lives...more

4.6 STARS - Touching and completely captivating about a child's reality
Still can feel and remember how fascinated I always was when reading all of Torey L. Hayden's non-fiction books then 20-25 years ago. Her so very tender stories about those children with special needs, often called "problems children”, she worked with can’t but be heartbreaking good stories. Well and and lovely tastefully written as well.
I loved Sheila’s story the last time I read it (don’t remember ...more
This story was from a different era. When the child welfare system was ill equipped to deal with child abuse and children known to be suffering from severe neglect were left in horrific conditions. There were not enough social workers, foster homes, or welfare checks to go around. When child trauma and reactive attachment was managed by professionals with authoritative and controlling practice ...more

This book follows the progress of a child that was placed in Ms. Hayden's classroom because there was 'no where else to put her' as she waited for an opening at the state hospital.
I felt this book was sincerely written, and very honest. It didn't dance around the subject matter at all. I also felt that Ms. Hayden was writing from a fairly objective perspective. She didn't toot her own horn constantly, nor did she degrade or downplay the roles of others in the process of working with ...more
but emotional disturbance is real and it's plaguing far more children than it should. i always find myself asking "why?" and "how?" as a teacher. Why do people choose to abuse (emotionally, physically, and/or sexually) children? How can we stop this? ...more
It was a good book for a study case. I do admit getting emotional in many parts. I had to stop and take a short break. But as I had to read it really fast I couldn't afford big breaks. Do approach with caution as it is graphic, full of trauma and abuse.
The book was well written and NO I don't think Torey is trying to take any credit ...more

"Not some things. Not the bad things. They never go away."
"Yes, they do. If you let them, they go away. Not as fast as we'd like sometimes, but they end too. What doesn't end is the way we feel about each other. Even when you're all grown up and somewhere else, you can remember what a good time we had together. Even when you're in the middle of bad things and they never seem to be changing, you can remember me. And I'll remember you.”
