When we talk about disruptive behaviors we refer to one or more antisocial behaviors that occur in a boy or girl. Or one may be the initiator, but the group follows him in his conduct. With these ruptures what is achieved is that, the patterns and socially accepted values are broken. Sometimes these behaviors threaten the group’s harmony, through hostile and provocative actions that incite disorganization in collective activities.
Here are some educational tools, which you can also use at home to address those disruptive behaviors, whether spontaneous or fixed in children.
According to the pattern, this will be the technique
There is no single strategy to address disruptive behaviors in the classroom. It is very important to know whether it is a habitual behavior of the child, or the girl, only shows it with certain teachers or may have never had this type of behavior and is now carrying out them. To work more effectively the teacher must talk to the child’s family , and know if they also repeat these behaviors in the house or what circumstance may have been the trigger.
most common is to keep a daily record of the behavior shown in class by the student, or student, in which the background that has arisen in the family are also recorded. This is the most effective way to work with the person and to be able to implement the different lines of action. It is interesting that these performances are strengthened in the family.
There are cases where disruptive behaviors are a consequence of an increased attention deficit disorder, for example, hyperactivity, bipolarity, autism, antisocial personality disorder or others.
How to help children with disruptive behavior
One of the first techniques to be put on the table is to work emotions and impulse control. Thanks to this technique the child learns to detect his disruptive behavior and, is able to slow down the impulse on his own. You can teach them relaxation techniques that reduce anxiety.
Encourage empathy and collaborative work. We can work with all the boys and girls in the classroom doing exercises that encourage empathy. One way is to promote collaborative peer work. When the boy, girl, with disruptive behavior recognizes the moods of others, this helps him to identify his own and improve his social skills.
A very interesting exercise is to assign these children responsibility tasks, either in the classroom or in the school itself. Last but not unimportant, it is to create a relaxed and relaxed atmosphere within the classroom. We can’t want to go back to a harmony, when it hasn’t happened. The most visual methods, especially among the smallest ones, tend to attract attention and relax the environment.
Coordination with the family in the face of disruptive behaviors
Below, we will list some of these disruptive behaviors that can occur in the classroom or at home. Actions to start fights are typical. Neglecting the furniture, not carrying the material, being late, disobeying the rules of attention and respect, intentionally interrupting the master… in general we can summarize them in a challenging attitude.
If your child’s teacher or guardian shows you that your child has these attitudes it is best to coordinate with him or her, to help the child avoid these behaviors. This is not the time for punishment, because it will generate more aversion to school or tutor. Find out if there is psychological support in the center or find it if you see it necessary.
The goal is both to reverse the situation and integrate the student, so that she can discover their strong skills and competencies and minimize their attitude problems in the class. In addition, you will achieve healthier self-esteem and develop all your learning skills.
