Teaching is a great profession that has the opportunity to shape lives and instill positive values and awareness in children. It's important to keep in mind as a teacher that you play a huge part in defining a child's future. There are certain features you must embrace and activities you should avoid to instill the appropriate values in a child.
We'll look at 5 typical things you should never say or do to your kids in order to avoid destroying their destiny. They're listed below.
1. Publicly speaking ill about a child before his classmate.
I understand that the pressures of teaching can sometimes drive a person to take dramatic measures in order to justify their vocation. Even so, it's critical to consider your activities and determine whether they're intended at imparting positive ideals or emotionally harming your children. The act of publicly chastising a youngster with harsh and emotionally dismal words can do a lot to undermine their self-esteem. Reminding a child of his shortcomings or weaknesses in front of his peers may cause emotional harm and possibly depression.
2. Using derogatory words on them because of their mischievousness.
Telling them how foolish or dull they are can have both short and long-term psychological consequences. If a child commits an offense, it is only ethical to subject the child to a minor and harmless punishment, or to educate the child on the importance of abstaining from such practices; however, using derogatory words on them can be harmful to their psychological well-being and will most likely kill their interest in education.
3. Punishing a student over an offence without proper investigation.
Many so-called professional teachers like performing this act. If you wrongfully accuse or punish a youngster, that child may develop feelings of anger and animosity toward you. If a matter involving student misconduct is brought to your attention as a teacher, you must conduct a thorough investigation to determine the authenticity of the issues raised; however, punishing a child who is most likely innocent is considered an injustice that could result in a judicial proceeding.
4. Giving a child a punishment that seems higher than their wrongs or ability.
According to Nigerian educational legislation and standards, using punishment as a tool to curb the nuisance and indecent behaviors of learners is legal; however, when applying disciplinary measures, caution and prudence should be used. Brutalizing or physically abusing a child, or punishing a youngster beyond his or her capacity or age, is regarded as an assault capable of imparting negative values.
5. Having an indecent relationship with a student of the opposite gender.
Unfortunately, this is a common practice at many schools nowadays. One vice that can psychologically, emotionally, and physically ruin a child's life is the attitude of engaging in an indecent relationship or amorous association with a pupil as a teacher. You will be dismissed from your job if you engage in this sinful behavior, and you will finally end up in prison.
