Parents often tell me and the teachers of their children that their child never acts at home the way they act at school.
All behavior means something. Oftentimes kids are over stimulated at school, tired, hungry, or busy trying to keep up with their peers. One of the things that could help them is if they have a consistent and concrete routine at home. For example, going to bed earlier every night, getting up earlier in the morning with time to spare for a meal before leaving the house could all help to make a morning as stress-free as possible.
Your children uses a lot of energy at school. Children are impacted by different stimuli and their peers development and energy level. Your children are sometimes in situations that they can’t inter-personally manage. They are learning a lot very rapidly. In certain situations, children can get overwhelmed. At home, children may act very different because they have a more controlled environment and they understand the boundaries and parameters at home. Sometimes at school, they’re still learning them as they go along.
