#10: Cruel to be kind? Striking the balance between addressing behaviours and maintaining relationships

I don’t need to sit here and tell you that building a positive relationship with a student is a pretty important part of the work we do.  I am sure you also know that the students who really need that relationship the most to trust you and learn from you, are also sometimes the ones who display the most challenging behaviours! This is why it is SUCH a double edged sword, because you will then NEED to address more of their challenging behaviours. And every time you address a challenging behaviour, it can be like one step forward and three steps back in our efforts to build that relationship! But I say POTENTIALLY because it doesn’t have to be like that, there ARE ways that we can manage behaviours that do strike that very delicate balance, and we NEED to be able to do this to progress with our most vulnerable and challenging students.  How??   In this episode, I give you a run down of classroom management that connects and disconnects, and explore the concept of using a students ‘emotional piggy bank’ to be very crafty and conscious of the way we establish and reinforce boundaries and expectations with ALL students! How to make investments in a relationship with even the toughest studentsHow to still hold boundaries and address challenging behaviour without being detrimental to the relationshipWhat is behaviour management that connects and disconnects and how to use it effectively Join the masterclass - Unlocking Your Teaching Superpower: Non Verbal Classroom Management.
