4:25 pm
come. down drunk off without me. come. to us and you must either conceive it is usually you often use the word was there was a look at how the syrian people are suffering i wish i was sort of the monitor gosh
4:26 pm
. but i'm sure there are things destroyed the poor kids. no one and everyone asks why do you subject yourself to this and then i see more that so many people die when fleeing across and i wish it hadn't let all about me die in syria anyway yeah there's no big difference much like it is dead on the fear people have a chance. to do some things even when those numbers you. know. i don't. know. or. can you but i see my family every day in my dreams he'll have to speak with him in my thoughts before you know i can barely reach them on the phone though the joy of my heart and i have taken them with me through the sahara across the ocean.
4:27 pm
it would have been their death. my kids are too young for that i guess so. but i see we had no other choice than had the loss of us. just. come on in. it's good to see. how you doing out of your good thanks but not only good years i have a problem with my wife my family and there in beirut. they've been waiting for five months that's a problem that's very long. on my feet and it's dangerous for my family in syria.
4:28 pm
my family has no heart so they're living on the street. please help me if i'm me and. we'll have to see if we can get the refugee advisory office in altona involved . is the one handling the case if you want i'll call there and make an appointment and maybe maybe next week or in ten days or another. that month because of naturally like most fathers he wants to hurry things along home he'd like to settle here he wants everything to make a life like the one he had before in his homeland he had a good job there he had a house and he's lost all of that and now he's trying to rebuild that safe and sound world for his family here. and of course that's not going to happen the way
4:29 pm
he imagines that means we're going to have to put the brakes on a lot of his hopes and wishes and say you just have to be more patient. to do it and.
4:30 pm
i went to the creel a monadic it's not that easy to make the bed for my wife and me. my bottle of this is something that no arab man would do in the store so you know let's have a bit. mike in that my children are coming tomorrow. so have i seen them for a year. my wife and children. yeah yeah seen as many in washington lessons in how.
4:31 pm

4:33 pm
ah ok ok we've already got part of the answer to being. a you raised your hand. would you like to say. did you have an idea. john boehner is still thinking about it all right once again john i you join in. do you know what comes next. john john a repeat after me everyone with. my . books and find the page then we can
4:34 pm
start. a special exercise for me. color in a. i o's and use a k. . yet here you have to add an a and then have a the whole thing over and here. i think i'm done. now raise your hand what does raise mean you put your hand up and she comes over. vanished good for very good it's rice has anybody on the short i don't know how much he's been towards a lot of things are unfamiliar to him like raising your hand or settling down when the sun is made to be quiet. or things you start learning in first grade it's
4:35 pm
a challenge for me to integrate him and continue to maintain the good dynamic we have in the clones. maybe. thanks but. yeah right one second janet yes now you have the chance when i say go get your breakfast. leno will choose a helper and together they'll pass out the cake and point. it
4:36 pm
. and that to. everything in the school. what. why not. have everything so modish. jenna how are you.
4:37 pm
right janet did it. maybe he doesn't know you shouldn't have your plate like that in other countries as he's supposed to know you're not allowed to do that there are refugees in other classes and some aren't so nice and but he's nice i think is really nice and even if you weren't nice you should treat him kindly and then he'd be nice but that .
4:38 pm
4:39 pm
jan it was so happy when i heard he would be allowed to go. he even got his own backpack. when he came home he was so happy.
4:40 pm
i don't want to be a bad mother i want my children to have right. here in germany children are equal. if that's not how it is and. i'd like to stay here in germany. we were doing badly in macedonia there was no school for my children and no work for me children went hungry. john.
4:41 pm
my my family. my family my family might be hungry when they arrive. it's. now six six fifteen. the plane lands at nine fifty. but three hours now and they're in the air and. it's my for. ya.
4:42 pm
you said this is yourself spared his sleep here some of them had bought him a little teddy bear. i don't know this is girlfriends better than me my only daughter my treasure sort of as it were. is that i don't want to use loves cars i bought him a couple of them this let's see i don't you're going to. have one enough you know they're doing and i bought him this teddy bear to be as friendly on your feet on a market of show saw another war took all his friends away he michael know enough he had a mom that lot of. actually did on the spot here he learned how to swim. and i got him these so he doesn't drop.
4:43 pm
i. know my little brother. there by luther the ability of my league i was.
4:44 pm
like you know. i must have. i think. you have about this well. if. you did so let me do something about it.
4:45 pm
just. say i think what this yeah. and i thought it was my children live here now and their future is here. we won't be returning to syria. but i want them to assimilate quickly.
4:46 pm
wow. ok a round of applause. so before we have breakfast we're all going to do. the.
4:47 pm
right. so. i bet polls all right i'm break time break time. which is john and i'm getting another place to work because you disturbing the other children some with things. to thank him are just as if your answer that's five for. you i think he acts the way he doesn't certain situations because
4:48 pm
he feels frustrated and overwhelmed in front of aside from the fact that he probably needs time to get used to everything i also think he needs clear instructions. it's a balancing act. i talked to the children and many said they know the behavior from their youngest siblings and when they want to have attention yet they then suggested that we try to remain focused and not get distracted and then maybe janet will see that he's not going to get any attention and he should just go along with what we're doing she. finished. i'm going to have aged out during lessons he needs a lot of help from whoever's sitting next to him quite yet. i don't know if it would be better to give him more help or let him get used to the rules one by one over time and that's why it's just from what i understand he was given the basics with the admission and that he's not really acquainted with how things are done the school has this to continue on time and now it turns out that he's having trouble
4:49 pm
fitting in how do you enjoy being the class clown and occupying a special position. as far as i'm. sure you. know fighting john asked john. but jakob was teasing janet janet didn't do anything . but. yeah i get to give a tear you want to get it. my sustain some understand it and others not so well they say why is this refugee kid getting special treatment so you have to ask those children how they would feel if they went to a new class it's no one knows whether he'll need half a year or just a month. we have now has kind of unfairness and
4:50 pm
can we just had a case where a child from macedonia was deported first of all i'm a bit afraid that that could happen again. but the school authorities instructions are clear. every school aged child has to attend school from the first day to the last one and i basically support that idea. i mean. if you say this child is going to be deported anyway so it's not worth sending him to school. then we'd have lots and lots of kids running around doing god knows what. we have if you say right from the start he's going to be gone soon anyway and you never properly integrate him into the school so much so we have to act as though these kids are just like any other and will be attending school here for four years and. you know for sure yeah yeah yeah yeah. yeah but if you were to leave again in three weeks there's not much you can achieve. the child is left with is distress and spiced ration and
4:51 pm
empty hope. so i hope for his sake that he can stay here for a while. laying out how long it had been come. to syria i was always top of my class and a a b. and a. class participation a behavior a. b.
4:52 pm
here's one example of how i see one and as long as we live here in the camp we won't be at home because of the listeners it's only when you go home to your own apartment after work that you've truly arrived. and as long as we're living in temporary housing we refugees are still on the money side them seekers. we're going to park my children with them or live normally again in the wonders of. nature.
4:53 pm
shawn i have to go back to syria was out of syria well i'd say no it wasn't even though it's nice there i just think first of all how do you like our life here in the county when i'm one hundred like germany but after a mormon marcel marceau he she doesn't have to listen to. that her don't have to be a fright there's a thousand we have a difficult time i had of us our mother i mean i think we can manage together. well mike.
4:54 pm
for your start he wasn't always so aggressive because now there are complaints about him almost every day just get in touch with reality and. this you think that's a shame and inch by him is that he's happy and i often helped him out but now he's so angry with me. that. the it really
4:55 pm
hurts me a lot. i have for you everyone's afraid of him everyone i work for but i know why he's so aggressive and i know because in the past he got hit a lot. of course of water. if you keep getting more aggressive not even the teacher knows what to do she has to be tough there's and then. i think it's nice that it worked out that we can meet like this particular map with a way to try and help him i mean. you know we had another situation that led to a lot of complaints which makes it clear a lot more needs to be done. nor do i think that's very important if. if these conflicts on to resolved then they keep building up as teachers we
4:56 pm
can't run around trying to fix things during recess. the other kids say he has to learn to be nice so that hits the nail on the head. i don't think he really knows how to play nice what to do to get along with other people. as a school you always have the option of saying he can't be taught we have to keep that in mind when thinking of ways to help him with this issue i mean that as one would be nice if we could resolve things that easily yes most there's now another temporary learning group and i'll turn out but it takes at least nine months to get it i thought you know and in this particular situation. i'm guessing he's not the only refugee child to behave like this because he's been traumatized. so i says there's no way of making special arrangements for all of them. i'm pretty pessimistic. gunson answers i this thing on the
4:57 pm
one hand we have john but on the other someone like my son. he's pretty tolerant that's highrise to him that i can see how angry he is. he told our veterinarian that there's a refugee child in his closet who always had his head down and the vet said i'm quoting him to get them to buy him a ticket to fly back home. as an adult when he told me that i just thought oh great . actor he picks up on stuff like this. and i can't help but think what are our children going through life what opinions are they forming. this is part of their political education what impact is it having on them.
4:58 pm
