Hi there! I control the behavior of the class using the class behavior management program (called Net Control). This program allows you to check the progress of students and monitor their behavior. Good luck!
No.8 is “Make consequences immediate” instead of something like detention. So what are suggested immediate consequences?
Often, natural consequences are also recommended and can go hand-in-hand. A detailed answer depends on the specific behavior. “Consequences should have realistic time
limits: long enough to teach a lesson but short enough to give your child a chance to move on to positive things. Overly harsh consequences will encourage your child to resent your authority — and generate more anger.” https://www.additudemag.com/slideshows/adhd-discipline-help-for-parents/
The real impact comes in focusing more on positives than negatives. Sometimes, that means ignoring unimportant infractions.
