ok some interesting discussion there.

I will pose you another question.

Who is responsible for disciplining the child before and after class if they throw a tantrum?

During class is no problem - after all we are able to deal with this as the instructor, but if you have a kid who has a complete meltdown before/after class how to YOU handle it?

Do you handle it differently if their parent is there?

I think the general rule is: As soon as they step onto your premises, they are under your care. As soon as they leave your premises, they are SEP...

I guess, tag, you're it.

However, if the parent is there... I'd let the parent deal with it.

Like eyrie, I'd let the parent deal with it also, but unlike him I feel as though "my time" starts when class starts not when they walk in the door (some of our students get to class pretty early). I might remind the kids that the eye rolling when their parents tell them to start warming up isn't acceptable, but I'm not going to go any further than that with them before class starts. If the parents ask for suggestions, tips, or help to deal with their kid's behavior before and after class, I'll help them out but not until I'm asked. It's the parent's job to parent, my job to teach during my alloted hour.

Reiki

Kinda depends on the exact situation.

My knee-jerk reaction is establish exactly why the kid is blowing his top.......if its a temper tantrum then he/she is asked to leave the floor and go sit down in a chair off the mat/workout area.

Other than that:

1-I don't teach kids without a parent being present for the lesson....presuming the parent is there I ask them to deal with it.

I'm here to teach martial arts.....not deal with the tantrums of their child....plus I assume that there are other paying students that need my help at that time as well....time spent dealing with their screaming child is time taken from other peoples kids....not sure that is very fair.

2-How is the kids behavior in general? If its a "new" behavior I would cut them some slack...if its a repeat....ie multiple times, then I ask the parent to seek training for his kid elsewhere.....actually not a resquest--but I am polite.

3-If its something I talk thu with the kid--after the class is over then I'm fine with doing so.

Hello cxt:

Ancient thread but a good topic to keep exploring IMV...

<<if its a temper tantrum then he/she is asked to leave the floor and go sit down in a chair off the mat/workout area.

Full blown melt downs whatever their specific trigger do not often "reduce" with more attention, whether it is deserved, and required or not.

What method-approach do you use to drown their literal flames before us?

<<I'm here to teach martial arts.....not deal with the tantrums of their child....

Being children, they will and do happen at times. How can you avoid-prevent the emotions of children? Accidents happen, things are misunderstood, contact is occasionally made. Emotions should surface. Are these permitted IYV?

<<not sure that is very fair.

Not fair but reality none the less.

Jeff
