What to do if there is a difficult child in the class

If possible, make contact with the child's parent

When the "not like this" kid is in your class, it's much more productive to try to interact with him and his parent than to shy away and leave them completely isolated. Talk to your mom or dad not from the position of “this bastard of yours, offends my little blood, but you don’t give a damn, unfortunate mother.” Try to understand who is really in front of you. There are three options.

The first option: this parent is as difficult as the child. (A rich uncle who doesn’t give a damn about his arrogant offspring. Both dad and son think that everything around is dirt under their feet. Or a habal mom, always drunk, doesn’t listen to anything and starts yelling first.) In this case, feel free to skip to paragraph three.

The second option: the parent admits that the child has problems, but is helpless and unable to cope with them. In this case, it is worth considering together whether it is possible to somehow help the child and the family. If those are related to writing written works, then buy an assignment online and help him with this. Perhaps the mother sincerely wants to raise him better and solve problems, but does not understand how. In this case, you can:

Find them a good psychologist (they are free or inexpensive).

Give something to read about the problems she faced.

Take advice: maybe one of the parents has already overcome something similar with their children.

Tell them what documents to collect so that the child is given a tutor (or even pay for the assistant’s hours of work by chipping in with the whole class - but this, of course, is the triumph of humanism).

Tell how to pass PMPK, dispel fears about a correctional school, if someone has this experience.

Sometimes it turns out that the problems are even deeper. For example, a difficult child grows up in a family with a drinking father who beats both children and mother. In this case, we can do little to help, except to emotionally support the person and give the telephone number of the crisis center.
