    Class Meetings

    I had a meeting like this a few years ago when I had a child with a severe behaviour problem. I was told to ignore the bad stuff and only praise the good. I felt it was only fair to explain to the other kids why i would be letting this child away with so much, so I had a discussion with the class when the child wasn't there. I explained that I was doing this to help the child improve his behaviour and they would all have to help me by not laughing at any silly antics he might get up to to get attention. IT WORKED! But some of my colleagues weren't too comfortable with the idea of talking about the child to the others. I have to say in hindsight I would do exactly the same again. It is not done to hurt the child in any way and may help the others to look at things from her perspective and not just their own.
    Good Luck and let us know how it goes.
