Children today are dealing with problems like never before and are beyond ones comprehension. With both the parents working, Lack of emotional support, changing family dynamics, unrealistic expectations and academic pressures are challenging their normal state of mind and wellbeing. Not only are these children coping with all the normal problems of growing up, but many of them haven’t had a chance to be ‘children’.
The sad truth is that in today’s world, children are being subjected to unprecedented stress and neglect at home. If a teacher has any hope of helping them master their academic skills, they have to first help them unpack some of the emotional baggage’s they carry into their classrooms. It hence becomes imperative for teachers, most important and influential adults in the education system, to know the ‘why’ and ‘how’ of behavior management if they want to be successful in the key aspect of their job – teaching children!
In a typical classroom, teachers spend more than 40% of instructional time controlling unproductive student behavior. Hence, the usual discussion on behavior management places far too much emphasis on controlling misbehavior. This has not proved to be very effective, as controlling misbehavior is only a short term solution. Time has come to move the focus away from controlling student behavior to creating a learning environment that builds positive student behavior.
