It’s our fault

February 8, 2014 § 4 Comments

Very often we hear teachers complain about student behavior. Ha! Behavior!! Bad behavior! What’s it all about? Well behavior is simply one way kids communicate. It’s most likely the one form of communication we tend not to listen too. We need to SEE kids more clearly. If children are having bad behavior then they are trying to tell us in their way that we are not supporting them the right way. We are not giving them the accommodations and modifications they need to feel successful. Stop blaming the kid!

    My feeling is the key to supporting is understanding the behavior and why it happened. If you can do that you can provide the correct and appropriate support for the child.

    Exactly Chris! The problem is this does not always happen.

  • AMEN! I am dealing with this exactly. I’m finding there are far too few teachers who are willing to look deeper and find out what makes a kid tick. I don’t think there is such a thing as a bad kid. They exhibit certain behaviors for a reason. They’re looking for help and don’t know how to ask for it or express themselves better. (I’m not referring to my youngest!)

    You are absolutely right! I’ve seen proof of this occasionally throughout my daughters life. In school and at home. Once you find the reason for the behaviour you can fix it. Being understood makes a huge difference to the child.
