17. Are we just excusing ‘bad behaviour’? What teachers need to know about the ‘why’ behind challenging student behaviour

In this episode, I answer the question, “aren’t we just excusing bad behaviour when we look into why it is happening?” Why bother learning about behaviour?  Afterall, whatever the reason behind it, it doesn’t change the fact that it IS happening and we need to address it all the same as teachers right?  So why spend time learning about it? Doesn’t learning about the why behind behaviour excuse the behaviour in a way?  No, certainly not.  In fact, learning more about the why behind the behaviour is incredibly empowering, not just for teachers who are dealing with this behaviour in front of them, but for students as well.  Listen in as I explore many reasons why knowing the ‘why’ behind the behavior is so crucial for us as teachers and students who display challenging behaviour, including: Increased accountability and buy in for students who are able to reflect more authentically on their behavioursSupporting us to regulate, de-personalise, and surround ourselves with a protective behaviour bubbleGiving us the ability as teachers to use strategies we know will have a positive impact and be able to explain why this is the case
