How To Enforce Discipline In Young Children In School?

Inculcating discipline amongst the students is vitally important. A school needs to device a way to discipline its students without crossing the boundary where it will look like punishment.


As a teacher, you must have met students who have tested the limit of your patience. In most cases, teacher resorts to the usual methods of dealing with such a situation; verbal warning, detention or calling up the parents. Even after using all these avenues you may face an odd one out who is hell-bent on disturbing the class. In such a case the extreme step of removing the student from the class is taken. In most schools of Faridabad (also in the majority of the schools in the country), corporal punishment is not used as it can have a negative impact on the mind of the student. Therefore, you will find that in some of the best schools in Faridabad, teachers are trained to see the big picture to deal with this issue.

Teaching a child about discipline is a team effort, wherein the student themselves, the teacher, the parents, and the school administrators have a meaningful role in maintaining the classroom discipline so that the teachers can communicate better. Among the four players who have a role to maintain discipline, the role of the teacher is primary. If you are a teacher either in a primary school or one of the best science schools in Faridabad, you must develop an effective discipline plan and use it consistently in your classroom.

In this article, we have shared with you a few tips that will improve discipline in your classroom.

1). You must be professional when teaching. You should not become too familiar with your students by sharing your troubles or cracking off-color jokes. This will make the students lose their respect for you.

2). Make some rules that are fair and cover all types of situation that may arise in a classroom. Put the rules in writing and paste it on the notice board so that the students know the dos and don’ts clearly.

3). Writing the rule is one thing, but if you don’t enforce them fairly and consistently, the students will flout them without any fear. You should always see that the rules that you have framed are yielding the desired results, if not, then you should either modify them or change them.

4). Always maintain situational awareness in the classroom. If the students find out that you are alert and will easily find out who is causing the disturbances, then they are less likely to make any ruckus in your class. Always maintain eye contact with the students. Always walk around the class while teaching which will make it difficult for the students to do something surreptitiously as you are watching them from all angles.


5). Always remember the importance of silence while dealing with a truant student. Raising the voice is not a great idea, if the student is arguing, maintain your eye contact and keep your voice low. If the student is still arguing, then simply say that you will discuss it later and walk away. Do not engage in a verbal spat.

6). If all the above effort fails, then ask the student to see you after class. You should never scold a student in front of other students. You should never lose your cool.

7). Keep the students busy through a variety of activities. A student will learn a lot by doing something rather than sitting quietly. Furthermore, if the student is engaged, then he will not get the time to think about any mischief.

Follow these instructions diligently and you will find that your class becomes more responsive and the level of disruption in your class going down significantly.
