Have you seen a child being too aggressive – hitting and hurting other children, destroying things etc..?Have you seen a boy/girl being too timid, withdrawn, aloof, isolated?Have you seen an adolescent high school student being reckless, indulge in risk behaviours – smoking, drug and alcohol abuse?All of us have seen and have wondered why? Why the children are like this?How to set right these children? What should be done to avoid these problem behaviours? How to identify and address these behaviours and intervene to mainstream them?The students need not be exceptional to encounter problems in school. They face a diverse array of problems and challenges as they progress through school years which manifests itself through these behaviors. We know that the children are an asset for a country since they are the future nation builders and their health and wellbeing always remains as a primary concern. Children of elementary school, middle school and high school spend the active part of their day at school and hence, school plays a very important role in moulding the personality which endures through thoughts, feelings and behaviours of the students.
