I just have a question that I was pondering as I read through some of the post on behavior managment. I notice that most teachers have students that they regard as "out of control" and it made me wonder, are these kids suffering from ADHD and Bipolar or are they lacking some kind of adult attention/instruction? It made me wonder what other teachers felt about these kind of chidlren. I teach preschool and I have a great group of kids. There are 3 out of 35 however that are a complete mess! They are do not listen. They hit, kick and throw terrible fits. I have definitley had to use some tough love this year but sometimes I just feel they need extra love and understanding. I am under the impression that I may be the only adult in their life who cares enough to help them. My co-teachers seem to feel that we should just expell these naughty children and make the classroom an easier place. What do you think? Is it nature or nurture? Can one teacher make a difference?
