Why are my teenage students being difficult?



Teenagers go through several changes in their growing years. In schools, teachers find themselves managing an entire class of students exhibiting “difficult behaviors.” The first video of our column - “Why are my teenage students being difficult?” addresses different aspects of adolescence and how it impacts teenagers’ behavior in classrooms. We will also focus on what you as a teacher can do to help your students regulate their emotions better. Knowing teenagers with Aarti C Rajaratnam is a fortnightly video column for parents, teachers, and adults who interact with teenagers. Each episode will share insights on the adolescent mind and behavior. Aarti C Rajaratnam is a clinical psychologist who has been working with children and teenagers for two decades.
