There are two basic things that a child needs in order to feel comfortable and cooperative with learning. The first is a sense of control over their choices. The second is a sense of competence, the ability to perform what is being asked of them.

If they don’t feel control and competence they give resistance and behavior not conducive to learning.

I recently posted a new part of a series on dealing with behavioral challenges:

How To Deal With Challenging Students—Part 3—Competence and Control

This is something every parent and teacher deals with, and I’m always all ears for what works, so please share your experience!

Happy practicing,
Edward
