The Underachiever

Mistakes: Common misjudgments and errors in managing the child which may perpetuate or intensify the problem.

  • Quitting on the underachiever. This is the worst thing we can do. As long as we don't quit-even if the student has - hope remains.

  • Thinking it's too late to do anything this year. It is not. Next year offers a new beginning which may be the result of our final influence. That's why we must not quit.

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.
