How to Change your Children’s Behavior at School

How to Change your Children’s Behavior at School

A child can develop bad behavior at school. You may start noticing how his attitude is changing over time. Kid’s behavior can be influenced by many factors including peer pressure, communication gap, and self-confidence among many others.

Several signs show how your child is having difficulty in school. Some kids find it difficult to follow instructions in class while others do not seem to get along with fellow students. You might occasionally get called to the principal’s office due to bad behavior or perhaps your child’s grades may start to slip.

Some kids directly tell their parents that they hate going to school because they are being bullied, or maybe they do not have friends. These are just a few of the many reasons that affect children’s behavior. As parents, we need to get to the bottom of this and correct this situation as early as possible. Do not ignore this because their bad attitude may be carried over into adulthood.

Once you become aware of their disruptive behavior, you should schedule a visit to their school and have a child-behavior-at-school-copyconsultation with their teacher. Their teacher may be able to help pinpoint the reason why your child is acting badly. Make an effort to reach out to your child so you can help direct and guide their steps towards the right path.   

Here are some tips on how you can improve your child’s behavior:

Give your child encouragement and support

Reaching out to your child and making them feel loved can dramatically pull them out of their slump. Sometimes kids badly behave because they are seeking more attention and care. Some cases may show children having social problems. If so, help your child to develop essential interactive skills. 

Approach the teacher or principal 

Tell them your observation and concerns. Ask the teacher how your kid is doing in school to be able to understand the scenario more deeply. Allow the teacher to give their recommendations and suggestions on how you can improve the situation.

You can also seek the help of the school’s guidance counselor.

Become more active in school 

Immerse yourself in your child’s school activities. Participate as much as you can so you can so you can see for yourself how your child acts and behaves around his classmates and superiors. This will help you understand and evaluate the entire picture.

Observe his behavior in school

Notice how he acts in school compared to his attitude at home. Notice patterns and signs particularly at times when he is demonstrating bad conduct.

Get to the root of the problem

List down all your observations that you think causes your child to act disruptively in school. Your list can be attributed to different factors, scenarios, and people.

Create an action plan 

Once you have clearly identified the problem, come up with a plan or strategy on how you can develop your child’s attitude and behavior in a positive way. There are different ways to do this. The important thing is to try each approach and see what will work best for them.

Get the teacher involved 

Your child’s teacher can serve as your eyes and ears in case you are not around. Discuss and brainstorm strategies talk-to-the-principalwith the teacher so that you can both come up with an appropriate plan and solution. You can even ask for the input of the guidance counselor or principal.

Evaluate your child’s progress 

After testing your plan, try to assess if it is making an impact on your child. In case there is no development, try to switch your plan and execute a different technique. The key is to keep on trying. One way or another, you sure would find a solution that will work for your child. The Baby Center has provided added tips that may help parents deal with their child’s school behavior problems.

Happy 4th of July weekend! This is going to be an interesting celebration without fireworks this year I am sure there is an Iphone app for fireworks I will have to check it out. But we B’s are not going to let that stop our celebration No Sir. This last week has been an interesting test of strength, patience and passion. A brief hospital stay a change in a relationship with my best friend (a change in the best of ways, we have grown closer than ever) and a few other little life tidbits that were thrown my way yet here I sit and type with a smile bigger than most would expect. I am very happy with my life and where I am at, at this very moment!!!

With an extra day of weekend and no ‘out of town’ plans, I’m looking forward to lots of relaxation, creativity and fun in the days ahead.

I am going to start compiling a weekend of To-Do’s…….Simple little creative lists that will inspire extraordinarily joyful weekends. Make your own list share whats on your to do?!?!?

An ideal morning

The moment when you first wake up in the morning is the most wonderful of the twenty-four hours. No matter how weary or dreary you may feel, you possess the certainty that, during the day that lies before you, absolutely anything may happen. The fact that it practically always doesn’t, matters not a bit.

The possibility is always there.

I have this vision of my ideal morning – It plays out quite similar to the start of a romantic comedy.
An easy Sinatra song plays in the background. I unfold my skinny arms and legs into a looong stretch. I roll over, shut off the alarm and climb out of bed with a serene smile on my lips.  I take a refreshing shower, find the not so perfect outfit and effortlessly apply my makeup.

Make the most out of your morning, I just did!! :))

Clothing that is never out of season

Look outside your window. Does nature not look beautiful. Does the grass not flow endlessly? And in the morning does it not make your feet sing just by touching them? Those flowers, do they not pleasure your nose in an oh so wonderful way? Does that waterfall not please you ears, and calm your mind? … I thought so.
