Problems at home
Students that have problems at home bring that frustration and anger into the classroom and it effects their performance academically. How can we as teachers help these students to separate home life from school life?

I think that students trust teachers and it is important we listen to the students and try to help. It might be as simple as encouraging the student to talk with their parents to work out problems instead of getting frustrated and angry. These are real life skills we can help them with. Masking the problem and getting them to forget it while they are at school is not helpful.

Make sure the student knows you are on their side no matter what. If this student has no support at home, it is important for them to get it in the classroom. Encourage this student in all they do and make sure they know that you care.

It is completely natural that young people carry their feelings into different situations and not being able to "leave them at home." Teachers need to recognize that if these issues aren't getting resolved, it will get even more difficult for them to want or be able to learn. Teachers need to be there for their students. Also referring them to school consoler may be necessary. Helping to fix problems at home first may need to be done before teaching can happen successfully. Helping them with cooping methods might help too.

First and foremost, talk with the student. Make sure they know that you care for them, and provide them with necessary resources. That could be providing cooping methods, sending a phone call home or referring them to a counselor. The most important thing is to make school as positive and reinforcing as possible. We want the students to like coming to school.

If I were in this situation, I would do exactly this. Students need to trust in their teacher and teachers need to make sure that they are providing the necessary resources that the student will need to be successful.

Find something that comforts them such as their favorite character, stuffed animal, etc. Suggest that *insert character name here* really depends on them to be a good team player and get their work done. It is relateable for them and might motivate them more.

I would pull each child aside and talk to each one to see if their is anything that I can do to help them with their problems that they are having at home. Depending on what the situations are if you help them then they will be happy to be at school.

This is where parent teacher conferences become very useful! When you are able to understand what is going on at home, you will understand how to handl the issue.

This is definitely something that should not be taken lightly. Always be open and encourage the child that it is okay to talk to you. Unfortunately, especially at younger ages, it is hard for children to separate home and school life. In fact, I think a parent meeting is important to address the problems.Do NOT attack or make the parent feel like they are doing something wrong, this will only cause them to close up and not listen to what you have to say. Instead suggest some things they can do at home to refocus and work on those behaviors. If the problem persists, I would say it would be a good time to take it to the school's social worker. It could be the underlying effect of some kind of abuse.

Socail workers are one of the best solutions to helping students that are having issues at home. Unless you can get the parents into classroom to cooperate with you, you may need to make contact with a social worker

I would try to sit down with the student and try to figure out what is going on. Hoping the student will open to me and tell me what is going on. From there we can figure out to solve their issues and if needed they can talk to the school counselor. So, this way we can get to the root of the problem and be able to separate their home and school life.

Talk with the student, give them time to unwind or calm down in the mornings before making them do assignments right away, find a person they can trust in like a guidance counselor, create an outlet such as a journal or a drawing book that they keep at school, allow for breaks and create an open code for when they walk in the door at what level they are on that day. ASK the student what they need, they often know.

Be supportive, it's our job to encourage them and care for them. If the student feels like their education is made important by someone else they will be more motivated to focus and succeed. This will make them more comfortable with you and give you the opportunity to suggest seeking the counselor and administrators help.

It is important to help students know that school and the classroom are safe places. It might help the student to know that they can come to the teacher to talk and let the student know that you are there for them. It might help the student if they were refereed to guidance and had set times that they could visit the guidance counselor each week.

The teacher should make sure these students are receiving assistance from the guidance counselor. A positive behavior reinforcement system might also help.

I think it is important that teachers create a welcoming environment. A home away from home. Let them know that every day they come in, they can escape everything outside that is bothering them. The classroom is a place you can rid of all your worries and participate in fun activities with their teacher and peers. When that environment is created, students are more likely to open up to the teacher about their home situation. This will make it easier to address everyone's problems individually.
