Sean Smeeton was ready to throw in the towel. For nearly 16 years, he had run the nonprofit Sylvan Beach Foundation, trying to get troubled young men on the right track, most recently through teaching them business skills by running ice cream shops. But after a gang beating at one of the shops and with funding for nonprofits drying up, Smeeton started to become discouraged and wondered if he was really making a difference. Then came a call earlier this year from Carroll Skipwith, a kid Smeeton had mentored when Skipwith was 12 years old but who ended up in jail for dealing drugs.

Today's question comes from a friend whose second-grader has been saying "I hate school." Over and over. What, if anything, should his parents do? I sent the question to Richard E. Bavaria, senior vice president for education outreach for Baltimore-based Sylvan Learning. Before joining Sylvan, he was executive director of the department of curriculum and instruction for Baltimore County Public Schools. He has a blog, DrRickblog.com, with tips for parents and educators. Bavaria said not to panic - many kids go through a stage like this, especially right after the fun of summer.
