The Disrespectful

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

  • Getting mad and responding accordingly. As much as we would like to understand and respond in professional ways, we may find it difficult and may react in a negative way.

  • Giving the student something to react to.

  • Reacting publicly.

  • Issuing ultimatums.

  • Failing to teach acceptable behavior.

  • Failing to show feelings of kindness.

  • Fighting for power or dominance in an attempt to change behavior.

  • Saying and doing things that we normally wouldn't.

  • Believing administrators don't respect us, or they wouldn't allow children to inflict such punishment on us. If we believe this, we may be expecting administrators to act beyond the realm of their authority.
