Teacher-student relationship (Factors (Bad emotional controlling skills…
Bad emotional controlling skills
The teacher should have a higher tolerance because there are students with different needs and abilities. She shouldn’t have smacked the student and the student shouldn’t have disrespected the teacher. Their poor emotional control resulted in the conflict.
Inappropriate way of communication
The use of language was unprofessional and rude. The physical attacks were also unnecessary. Therefore, the way they used to communicate, both physically and verbally, were inappropriate.
The teacher’s traditional authority was challenged
There was miscommunication. Teachers believe in their traditional authority over students but the students believe they have the right to do what they want. These challenges the teachers authority and will result in conflicts.
The teacher wants the student to take his studies seriously. But the student may have thought that it was the teacher’s job to teach and it has no connection with his attitude.
The student’s pursuit of autonomy
The student thinks he should not be controlled by the teacher and what he does is none of the teacher’s business. The adolescent seeks independence and the teacher does not agree.
Different backgrounds and values
This one child policy in China has spoiled most kids, making them think they’re the boss. But at school, the traditional authority is with the teachers. So this disagreement in values has caused this conflict.

Low amounts of press, low amounts of care
Apathetic and indifferent
Lack of structure lead students to act out
Teachers who forge high-performance relationships

Brief summary of news

Measure the protagonists
used in dealing with the conflict
Since the student felt being treated unfairly, he fight back against the teacher, instead of apologising for his disrespectful behaviour
The teacher slaps the student since she felt her authority is being challenged, in order to regain respect from him and other students. She didn’t try to step back and ask about the reason for the students’s behaviour nor use a milder way to handle the problem
A video shows the female teacher scolding the student and the student argues back with disrespectful language. Teacher’s authority was being challenged and slapped him on the face, however, the student felt being treated unfairly and fought back
The teacher has to sit the student down and swiftly recollect herself from the chaotic situation
One should interrupt the class plan by conducting a class brainstorming session on how to solve the issue together
Both sides can fulfil their inquiries as well as deepening mutual relationship, bringing harmony to their future communication
Though it forgoes a lesson's progress, but in the long run, this establishes a positive learning atmosphere in the classroom
The teacher should sit the infuriated/emotionally turbulent student down, instead of continuing their senseless arguments
The teacher should offer a quiet and private conversation after class
In conversation, both sides should restate what they heard the other person say as it brings clarity and empathy into the process
They should both take responsibility of the occurrence of the situation
Surrenders to the students and agrees on giving some freedom to individuals
Students and teacher can solve the conflict in a very simple and convenient manner, without wasting additional time to dwell on situation
But this may end up giving too much authority to students, which potentially leads to a hectic classroom
This technique only applies to very self-disciplined individuals where they are self-manageable and well-behaved students
Listen to each others honest opinion
Consider each other
Fair authority and state
put oneself in the place of other
Work from both sides
