HI. I have a child in my kindergarten class who seems to seek out defiant behavior. If I ask children not to do something, she will do it. Sometimes while looking at me. When I approach her about it, she smiles. She is often touching other children at meeting time or blurting out. When she is asked to go take a break at a table, she will do so. When she returns, it starts all over again. She has missed recess time and doesnt seem to care. She is often bossy to other children. Sometimes, other children dont want to play with her but again, she doesnt seem to care. She pushes people out of the way when she wants to get by. One day she actually pushed a child down on the floor. I had her help the child up off the floor and make sure the child was ok. She did so reluctantly. She is the only child of an older couple. I have tried consequences for her actions but it doesnt seem to bother her. Anyone have some suggestions before I burn out?

I am not suggesting that this will correct her antisocial behavior overnight, but it will redirect her att...See More

F elmir I suggest you make variations to classroom activities so that they would interest her. Some students cannot maintain concentration or attention when it is for example, just a writing activity. You can incorporate bodily kinesthetic activities to you English lessons, i.e. role play; this strategy would definitely engage a student; you can then follo...See More

F Elmir You need to clearly explain what the boundaries are with other children and model positive social interactions so that she can learn what the correct way to interact is. It seems that negative consequences are not working, so you could switch to using a positive rewards system for her, when you catch her being good and exhibiting the desired behavi...See More
