Clip to ScrapBook #2

I approach kids like this in two ways.


First, of course, it's about them minding their own business. My refrain is "worry about the choices you are making, not the choices others are making". And I'll say it over and over and over. If you are wanting to use a chart or something, I would make it positive by stating "focuses on own behavior" or something like that. I, personally, never use charts so I'm not sure how well that would work.



Second, it's about training the other kids not to react. He is not the teacher, they don't have to do what he says or listen to him. He's probably getting a reaction (and you are probably sick of others tattling that he's being bossy). Help by giving them a refrain to say to him and then walk away. It can be something as simple as "you aren't the teacher" and then ignore or walk away. Take away his audience and it takes away the reactions he gets.


Good luck!
