Primary Needs Being Revealed

Rest

We're all aware of the human need for rest. Yet, we may not be aware that some students are not getting their rest. Failure to meet this need may be caused by a variety of factors: personal worries, family problems and responsibilities, illness, and after-school jobs. Remember, school may be a big part of a child's life, but it is not the only part. We also need to remember that the need for rest extends beyond sleep. Students also need rest from pressure and work. Therefore, depriving them of recess, socialization, and similar privileges may be counterproductive to getting good behavior and academic motivation in the classroom.

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.
