Social and Emotional Learning
We’ve all seen these behaviors in students at one time or another. Often, we see them daily in a variety of forms. Many times, we label these actions as “misbehavior” and are quick to dole out consequences.
In reality, each time a child acts out, there is usually a deeper reason behind it. Fear of failure. Confusion. Stress from home life. Insecurity. Low self-esteem. Traumatic experiences.
