Remain Human, then...
Be A Human, Then...
They are little monsters! These kids are unbearable! I wonder what kind of training they received!
Have we ever uttered such complaint after a challenging confrontation with a student? If yes, here is how to prevent and correct that the next time.
Do we see our students as human beings, little human beings who are in training? That is what they are. We are the adults. we are the authority figure. We need to constantly teach about life and its rules. The principles are the same EVERYWHERE. They are laws to be observed in any human society. And these youngsters need and deserve to know. They have to learn these basic principles of life from you and me.
So if we are humans, and do all that we can to emulate and exemplify good behavior, respect and all great virtues, then we will be able to regain our students.
If we are humans and do not get in a fury as they demonstrate unconscious incompetence or conscious incompetence in the areas of life, we need as adult show them, not tell them, talk to them not shout or yell at them.
Yes,only if we remain human ADULTS, who master the laws of life and project ourselves as role model (that is what a teacher is), then will our students be little humans who are willing to learn not just Math, Sciences or Language Arts, but about LIFE.
