Behavior Problems: The Behavior Is Unacceptable, Not the Student

When dealing with behavior problems, make sure the child understands that their actions are unacceptable, not themselves.


When I hear that a child has “behavior problems” I always try to make sure that my mindset is focused on those problems and not let it color my view of the child as a whole person. A child is more than just “behavior problems.” They have all sorts of other aspects to them, they’re always very dynamic people. They’re often my favorite students. It’s really really important when you are dealing with that child and their behavior that you make sure the child recognizes that it’s the behavior that is found unacceptable, not the child and establishing a rapport of respect and love and care making sure that that child knows it’s not them as a human being it’s what they’re doing.
