How do you manage misbehaving children?
I am a high school senior looking to perfect my pathway for the future. I am accepted into Cedarville University in southern Ohio, and I plan to to major in Early Childhood Education. After college, I plan to become a teacher for a grade level between kindergarten and 5th grade. #elementary-education #teacher #cedarville #highschool-senior #college #teaching
1) Children respond better when you turn directions into a game. Instead of telling them "Be quiet", play a game where they are all super secret spies and have to be very quiet so they don't get caught!
2) Sometimes children are misbehaving because they want attention. You would be surprised at how much some quality time spent with a student will positively impact their behavior
3) Build rapport with the parents of your students. Usually, no one knows a child better than their parent, so they are often able to give valuable insight on a child's behavior.
If you are someone who loves children you will surely learn other tips and tricks to get them to behave as time goes on!
There are many ways to handle misbehaving children, but the best way is to catch them being good or doing the right thing by using immediate reinforcement with praise, a token, smiley sticker or reward. Praise works best and is free. But there are some children that seek negative attention so try to give them a leadership role like passing out papers, being a hallway monitor, etc. Then there are some children that have ADHD or emotional issues. Those children need to be brought up to the school team and may need to be evaluated by testing or ackassroom observation. Hope this helps you. There are many books online about correcting misbehavior that you can download or buy.
Good Luck! Gail 😊👍
