In talking to a grandmother of one of my students on Friday, I realized there is a debate brewing about dealing with behavior.
The student has a medical diagnosis and hasn’t been taking his medications and his behavior is off the chain.
Grandmama said, “He don’t need no medication, he just need a good ol’ butt whooping. (Well, she didn’t actually use butt…lol)
My question to you is: Do students actually need medication for their behaviors or are the problems coming with how they are being taught discipline at home?
Talk to me…give me your feedback and thoughts.
