 Speaking the Truth in Love

(a) You can criticize a child's behavior, but never criticize the child.

(b) There's a difference between correcting the child and attacking the child. Never verbally put down your student.

(c) Be a "5-to-1" teacher. Every time you give your student a consequence for misbehavior, provide five opportunities for them to earn your praise or a reward.
