There are so many probabilities that engage, cause, or motivate student behaviors.

Some are social turbulences, while others are cultural or emotional conflicts and are generally contingent on individual student circumstances. The good news is that diverse solutions to classroom and educational disruptions are reinforced by academic practices and family involvement, helping to deal effectively with these behaviors.

Childhood is a time of innocence and learning about a world of challenges. As adults, we forget that students – no matter what age – experience their worries, stress, and anxiety.

As a result of daily interactions, teachers are usually the first to witness different behaviors. In some cases, the acts interfere with students’ academic performances. For this reason, parents need to know about a child’s behavior and the available resources that can help students flourish.

Behaviors – Answering the Questions of Why, What, and When

Classroom activities have a significant influence on a student’s life. When it comes to coping with change or challenges at school or home, students react by:

  • Disrupting class
  • Showing aggression toward the teacher or classmates
  • Seeking solitude, unresponsive or withdrawn
  • Refusing to complete work assignments
  • Inappropriate language

Difficulties with study, health problems, family crises, personal adjustments, or social developments can influence a student’s behavior. Too often, students suffer in silence. Parents need to know about student behavior to assess the cause and implement a distinct solution for getting the student back on the road to learning.

Setting Behavior Boundaries and Expectations Up Front

Different school behaviors are common as students encounter new environments and more challenging study topics. Most are managed by teachers setting the ground rules of acceptable classroom behaviors. These guidelines help to keep students focused on what’s happening in the classroom. Here are some tips for establishing rules:

  • Highlight the classroom rules
  • Outline classwork requirements
  • Explain the acceptable behaviors

Sometimes, a student isn’t accustomed to having rules imposed – triggering undesirable behavior. Parents need to talk with students about school settings and explain why rules or limits differ from home.

Behavior Problems Interfering with Classroom Learning

Teacher responsibilities apply to all of the classroom attendees. From time to time, an individual student can interrupt the study lesson for the entire class. Can teachers control adverse behavior – no. When a teacher attempts to restrict any of these behaviors with no success, the group feels frustrated and sometimes helpless.

  • Inattention
  • Hyperactivity
  • Defiance

Control rests with the student committing the act. Parents may have more experience with these behaviors and can help identify the root causes.

Understanding Behavioral Causes, Preventions, and Approaches

Most common school behaviors stem from common causes. Sometimes students find it challenging to comprehend what’s being asked of them. Other times, expectations instigate stress leading to failure. Teachers and parents can help students regain emotional control through support and education.

  • Positive incentives
  • Building confidence
  • Learning more about self-awareness

Parents must be aware of their child’s conduct – the school is not just about teaching. It’s also a social setting. Classrooms are group environments; once in a while, a student needs one-on-one attention.

Make Students Accountable for Rewards and Consequences

Teachers won’t ignore bad behavior in the classroom, but there’s only so much they can do without parental awareness. The student must understand the circumstances and the teacher’s discretion to notify the parents. It’s about being proactive.

  • Talk, listen, and understand first.
  • Explain the consequences of the behavior.
  • Leave some room for minor misbehaviors.
  • Encourage good behavior.

Telling A Parent About A Misbehaving Student

Teachers face many classroom demands, from lesson plans and supply shortages to individual student behaviors and study difficulties. Through it all, they manage and struggle to teach. One struggle that’s tougher than teaching is telling a parent about a misbehaving child.

Naturally, a parent’s protective instincts kick in, and teachers deal with a more sensitive situation. Here are a few tips to help inform parents of what is happening in the classroom:

  • Keep it straight without personal input or opinion.
  • Maintain a professional and friendly conversational tone.
  • Stick to facts – inform, no gossip or theories, and proceed.

Explain the situation and how it’s being addressed. Ask parents for feedback. Be sure to provide information about the school’s procedures and support resources.
