Avoid a Common Mistake When Confronting a Cheater

Monday, May 26, 2008

Tired of being beaten by a cheater? You've come to the right place.

Look them in the eye. Cheaters have some guilt in them, even if they're good at hiding it. Make it seem as though you see right through them, you're onto their little scheme, and that they shouldn't mess with you.
Tell another person, but NOT teacher, as if they're already a cheater, they might try to retaliate with peers! Try flipping the tables. Get another peer, who's a friend or decent enough, to witness or expose the dirty cheater! It'll make them start to get nervous, and from there you can start to interrogate them until the truth slips out!
If they're a cheater expert, they might be aware of this "I'm onto you" stare. But they can't read minds. Do it perhaps as sneaky as they are--or when they least expect it. Who knows? They might learn a lesson if you're patient and nice enough when you confront them!
Explain why cheating is. Otherwise, if you look unsure or meek, they'll write you off as someone who isn't confrontational.

  • If you're insecure, struggle with confidence or standing up for yourself, take an Assertive class.
  • If all else fails, alert the teacher or person of authority or power. Desperate circumstances call for desperate measures.
    • Don't be mean or try to cheat yourself!
    • Be aware of their shoes--how afraid would you feel if someone approached you to confront you for cheating? Probably cautious or nervous, if you did cheat, and even if you didn't. Please try to be kind, patient, and gentle--they'll be more likely to listen.
    • Don't stoop to their level. What works for one person, such as stealing, might not work for you if you think stealing is horrible. Because if you think another person is being awful by doing one thing, you'll feel twice as worse doing it yourself. Get it?
    • Be PATIENT and GENTLE--don't jump to blowing your head off or screaming to the top of your lungs. Be respectful and gentle, try to understand and convince them, and listen and expect them to do the same! The rest should fall into place after that.
    • Any decent person would listen and stop if you were patient, gentle, and communicated respectfully. If they fail to do so, then realize some people are simply like that--shrug and move on, but if you catch them again, turn them into authority (i.e. teachers, bosses, etc.).
    • Patience
    • Assertiveness
    • Confidence
    • Kindness

    How to decorate a Shared Room

    Sharing a room with a family member makes it difficult for you to decorate it the way that you would like. Say you like Peach, but your roomie likes blue. What do you do then?

    Divide up a schedule of when you get your time in your room and when your roomie gets time. During this agreed upon time you can do whatever you want to, such asdress or even talk on the telephone.

  • Decorate by using some of your favorite colors, and some of your roomie. If you have two beds, then you get a bedspread of your choice of color and allow the roomie to buy one of another color, the one that they like.
  • Make a deal on what decorations to get and the room will be yours as well as your roomie's. Compromise and enjoy sharing a room together.
  • Consider dividing the room into 2 sides. This does not mean that you are restricted to your side, it just creates a sense of personal space. Perhaps put a bookshelf in between your beds.Or hang a curtain.
  • You could also each have a corner of the room and share the rest.
  • A bunk bed can save space.
  • Each person should have their own space ie dresser, bed, bookshelf, lamp etc. if possible.
    • Look in decorating booksRemember that sharing a room with a family member can be a great thing. You can talk and share secrets and laugh at fun things.

    • Everything doesn't have to match
