The Underachiever

Effects: How behavior affects teachers, classmates, and parents in the school learning environment and the home family situation.

  • Teacher is concerned and frustrated. In truth, the underachiever may be concerned too.

  • Lessons being learned in class begin to seem unimportant to other students.

  • Parents are upset because they believe teacher isn't teaching correctly.

  • Other kids-especially borderline students-get pulled down to a level of underachieving with this student.

Please Note
We are labeling behaviors, not children! For the sake of convenience, we will describe behaviors with terms such as The Whiner or The Interrupter.

Never use such labels when talking to—or about—children! Doing so could cause many new problems and seriously damage the teacher-student or parent-child relationship.
