    I have been teaching for 18 years and I am sick and tired of the children who misbehave on a regular bases. I have tried so much in my past years to control behavior. I taught first grade for 13 years and finally got out for an older grade. The same kids I taught in first hadthe same behavior now that I am teaching them in fourth. I praise only good behavior. I keep a daily log that the child with bad behavior must sign and take responsibilty for their behavior. After 3 times signing the log, their parents must come in with the student. The student is told to explain the three bad behavior incidents that occured in class. They can't deny it because everything is written down and they signed it. After the first conference, the behavior stops. This year, I had 8 problem students out of 28. Now I have only 2. I make them responsible and I make the parents aware. It works! The two that have given me problems, both parents are in jail and they are being raised by grandparents. These kids just don't care
