PATHS has taught Braulio Olivas to calm down and think before he reacts. It’s hard though sometimes, he says. “Yesterday a kid from my class was behind me and he started touching my hair and I said, ‘stop it’ and he started laughing and he kept doing it, I said ‘stop’ and he started laughing again and I’m like, ‘shut up’ – then he kind of stopped.”
