Expect Good Behavior
Children can tell when someone expects them to have trouble. Always expect a certain level of behavior from a student. You know what he/she is capable of. Make them live up to it. In situations where you anticipate problems, explain to the child what is happening and what is expected of them. They just may surprise you!
