How Can I Overcome Authority Problems With My Students?

This post answers questions for The Council from a reader named, Christea17, who works as a teacher who’s having some difficulty with her students. Some of them are very disrespectful, lack interest in learning, and it’s difficult to teach them anything. Unfortunately I feel I lack the authority, strength, and energy I need to change the atmosphere in my classes.

The Council says this feeling of lack is exactly where the problem comes from. If you don’t believe in yourself and what you’re able to accomplish, you won’t be able to manifest what you desire into your reality. What you need to do is start within yourself to be aware of what you want to accomplish. Be aware of the training you have and that you know how to handle this situation.

In your current lifetime you wanted to work with very young children. If possible, we suggest you find a position where you’re working with very young children, even what’s considered daycare, and start there. Build trust in what you have to offer to these children and it will be accepted.

Christea says she doesn’t know how to deal with unpleasant situations. I like teaching, but rarely do I feel like I can teach my students something. Sometimes it’s really depressing what’s going on in my classes. The Council points out that you don’t know if you have the ability to teach and if these children could be interested. There’s so much doubt in your thoughts and your beliefs that at this particular time this teaching isn’t something that will work for you until you work on yourself.

In the beginning, when you get a new class to take care of, show an interest in each child. Instead of going right into the educational requirements, express to these children that you’d like to know all about them. One at a time, have them tell you something about themselves and see if you can connect with that. See if you can say something like, I went through that also, or that’s funny, or look how you turned the situation around and you went through it. What are your interests? Ask your students if they could be in a classroom and could choose what you wanted to learn about, what would that be?

Get more of an idea from the children what they want. The students would begin to see you as someone who’s interested in them, and then share part of your path. What was your childhood like? What do you go through now? Ask them about their interests. This is very important. The way the educational system is now isn’t interesting to most children.

Find ways to get the children’s interest and then teach them a little about what they want. For an hour in the morning you can take one child and talk about what they’re interested in, and tell them as much as you know about that subject. After that you can go into what they need to learn as far as the education system is concerned. The next day pick another child. You can ask them if they could learn anything, what would that be? Always show the children you’re interested in what they want.

The Council says there’s a past life connection in the early 1700s where you were part of a group of children that lived in the same area and had to work to help their family exist, grow food, and make clothing. There was always the thought of going to a proper school, learning in large groups, and sharing knowledge, but this wasn’t possible in that particular life. In your current life you’ve created a situation where you not only want to learn, but you also want to teach. Your doubt of how to do this and how to handle unruly children is part of the lesson you’ve brought into this lifetime.

The easiest way to teach these children is to find things they’re interested in, and show you have an interest in them as people. Always ask them what they want to learn. If they could teach this class, what would they want to learn? And when they act unruly or give you silly answers you can laugh with them and tell them it’s funny, but bring the conversation around to what they’d do if they were the teacher. Get their minds going by imagining what they’d do if they were in charge. You’ll see a big difference. If you can’t handle this right now, we advise you to try and work with smaller and younger groups until you feel more confident. This confidence must come through you first.

Christea17 says, I wish I knew how to deal with these situations better and how to interact more positively with my students. The Council advises Christea17 to be a regular person. Show interest in your students. Tell them about yourself. This will change the atmosphere.

The Council adds that there’s a little exercise you can do. Sit in front of the classroom before you start your lessons. Picture a beautiful green energy in your heart. If there are twenty people in your class, send out twenty ropes of energy from your heart, one to each child in the room. See that rope of green energy going into them, circling around, and coming back to you. Make this connection and this will also help. Everything begins with energy first. The green light energy is healing, it’s love, and it works with the heart.

The Council closes by wishing everyone peace, love, and light. They say have fun on your path. Always look for the fun. The happiness will bring in everything you wish to create, whether you know what it is now or not. Your higher self knows. And when you stay happy it can bring it in.
