Classroom behavior management

Some schools use a strict approach to behavior management in which students are taught explicit behavioral rules and understand the consequences of breaking them. Teachers praise good behavior and provide consistent, immediate and dispassionate discipline in times of trouble. In contrast, the developmental approach uses more subtle tactics to influence students’ behavior, including rewarding good behavior and relying on the pressure of parents, the preschool director and other students to alter poor behavior habits. While some schools use a combination of these approaches, it is important that parents select the school with the behavior management approach in which they believe and practice at home.
