• Positive Discipline

• Student of Adler
**The key to understanding
students’ misbehavior is to

understand their motive.**
     Motives Behind Misbehavior
•   Attention seeking
•   Power seeking
•   Revenge seeking
•   Displaying inadequacy
 **In examining his/her
own feelings, a teacher can
 determine the underlying
    goal of the child’s
     misbehavior.**
To Identify the Goal of the Child
                 • Teacher feels annoyed
                 • Teacher feels
                   threatened or
                   challenged
                 • Teacher feels hurt or
                   angry
                 • Teacher feels pity or
                   despair
 Linking Motives and Feelings
• Attention    • Annoyance

• Power        •Challenged

• Revenge      • Hurt/Anger

• Inadequacy   • Pity/Despair
To Overcome These Mistaken
          Goals:

  First, identify the goal

  Second, confront the goal
  How Do I Identify The Goal?

  QUESTIONS!

Dreikurs’ approach is to train
teachers to step back from
reacting emotionally.


Instead, teachers should
determine what the child needs,
then provide this for them.
