That's what I am saying, and the parents need to communicate with the teachers. Some parents shield their child completely against any accusations.
Some parents believe every accusation blindly. Some try to find a middle road where there is a dynamic between the triangle parent, kid, teacher. I
think that's the way to go.
Your post reads like, my be just my impression, that the teachers are completely freed of teaching some social skills, too. Yes, education is their
main job but acting like it's not their duty to keep the class in check, social engineering skills are needed for this, is a bit black&white kind of
There can be authority emanating from a teacher without physical discipline, or external discipline through parents. Just one example, I lisp heavy
and I wasn't freed from reading poems. The whole class laughed every time. I hated the teacher for doing this.
Back then I did not understand that singling me out would have made me an even bigger target. I learned, although much later in retrospective, that
there's no excuse for not doing something because you are not good at it. Instead I had to go through it just like everyone. But those that laughed...
He let them laugh and at the end he dished out "-" signs on their behavior.
He let them run into the knife until they learned not to laugh. He could have ridiculed them or done many other things. He showed them that sometimes
disciplinary actions are not suddenly and that he will watch them piling up, because they had been warned before countless times. And then serve it to
them until they learned.
That's a valuable lesson too, that one does not need external alarms when to behave, but watch what they do for themselves.
