Britain's Challenging Children (Child Psychology Documentary) | Real Stories



This film follows life inside 5 UK primary schools to uncover the enormous challenges faced by teachers dealing with violent and disruptive behaviour. 97 percent of teachers say they have to deal with disruptive pupils in their classroom – pupils like Levi in Luton, who regularly has to storm out of class for fear that he might lose control; or Jordyn in Glasgow whose swearing and aggression frightens teachers and classmates alike.

With remarkable results, we follow Levi, Jordyn and others as their schools reach out to both children and parents to address the roots of their behaviour.

In Jordyn’s school she benefits from a Nurture Group, a special room set up as a bridge between home and school, where the whole spectrum of behavours that form a barrier to learning, from complete withdrawal to outright aggression, can be addressed.

And in Levi’s school headteacher, Hilary Goddard puts into practice her “whole brain behaviour management in the classroom” to help both children, teachers and parents.

    I feel old for saying this but if we would have done this in school we would have been sent to the office and been paddled. And I'm only 31 lol

    I didn't see kids do this. Maybe once or twice a month but they didn't do it again after that lol.

    I know a lot of it has to do with home life versus how it used to be for most kids.

    Personally I think they need more of these “helping behaviour teachers” in secondary schools. Older children need someone to talk to sometimes. Also some secondary schools (like mine) don’t even have a ‘quiet room’ or something like that to think and be alone. X

    I didn’t like the lady with long black hair helping in the classroom. She shouldn’t be grabbing the boy by the arm like that. Some of these kids could have disabilities. I have a learning disability and ADHD and I struggled with behaviour too. I would like to see if they conclude at all that these children have been tested at all!

    England is far too small to keep excepting more and more families into the country. The children that live there can’t get the help they need which is sad and I feel bad for those children who are singled out too. There definitely are issues in the children’s homes but it’s like that all over the world!

    I was at times one of these problem children. I have autism, Adhd and I process information much slower than others my age making things like make a long boring process for my brain. I know how these kids think and I can honestly say, Telling the child not to walk out of the room is the OPPOSITE what what they should be doing! He has found a method that calms him, Removing ones self from the situation is a very big step! It shows that he can take a breath and let it go rather than feeling like he has to stay and have the last word. To this day I still often can’t let go of an argument, I always want to be right and if i’m not the last one to say something, I feel angry! Before the child can handle staying in the classroom he needs to be provided with better ways to calm himself.

    For example some children feel that coloring is very calming. Have a space in a corner of the classroom. When the child is overwhelmed he may ask that he is allowed to color in order to calm himself. To prevent arguments about having to leave the drawing table, The child will be provided one just 1 coloring page to complete (A time limit may be require for children who tend to spend more than 30 minutes at a time to start with). Once the child completes the coloring page he should eventually be able to get up on his own and return to his desk. If the child does not want to leave and wants to continue coloring after the time limit or after the child has completed the page, a good strategy is to make deals with the child that involved rewards example: “Tell you what, Let’s try to spend 15 minutes doing the lesson, and if you make through the entire 15 minutes, you can complete another coloring page! Does that sound okay?”

    This is something that would’ve been very effective for myself when i was younger. It still would to this day. You can’t expect 5 minutes to enough for a child, When your enjoying something it feels like hardly a split second.

    I work in a school in the US in a classroom for children with social and emotional behavioral disorders. Much of what is done in this video is illegal here. For example, we use a "time out booth" which is a padded room. But it is not allowed to be used as a punitive measure, only if the child is violently attacking others or themselves and must be temporarily isolated for a very short period of time. It also is padded inside for the child's safety (that room had pipes and stuff!), doesn't have a doorknob (instead it has a latch that must be held up by the teacher on the outside in order to keep it closed (this prevents kids from just being left inside), and we remove anything that they may use to hurt themselves if we know that child will do so (like a belt) before they go inside.

    HIPPA also would prevent such a video as this because the students are required to have their identity and information completely confidential. No one aside from the staff involved directly in the behavioral intervention plan is given any information on the children. Not only can you not mention their names to someone not involved, but you're also not allowed to mention any identifying characteristics either.

    Finally, teachers are not discouraged from getting help from the district with behavioral issues. Quite the opposite. The district even has employees whose sole job is to visit classrooms and take data on challenging behavior of individual students to determine if they need a behavioral plan, and perhaps a transfer into a unit like mine.

    Also, many of the techniques and methods used to interact with the children are less effective then what we are taught and use.

    What a load of bollix. No boundafies or structure just faffing and pandering to his messing. If theres problems at home get them sorted. We give children FAR TOO MUCH responsibility of the wrong kind. Opt out Parents are a lot of the problem.

    Im going to speak honestly about this The Government wont put money into schools for "challenging students" rather then testing them for a behavioral condition. But then they're willing to give out money to benefit dole dossing,mis-using parents. And then for parents with kids with physical disabilities there's no money what so ever.

    Sit next to the kid and ask them what’s going on. And then, LISTEN. that’s what they need. Even if they are being disruptive they are screaming for help. They need help. Not to be screamed at.

    The trouble is that many struggling children are not disruptive, and the quietly suffering ones can be neglected. I do think that Nurture Groups sound positive, though.

    It doesn't suprise me there is 0 mental health support for kids. There is also 0 support for kids with additional needs massive classroom sizes and high expectations. School is not a one size fits all expecting all kids to be the same and to fit into a certain level of teaching is crazy. Also thinking kids should just get along and that bullies will just stop bullying kids if they ignore the behaviour means some kids are picked on daily and worn down little by little till they break. My son who has autism and developmental delays had great reports his first few years because he just took the bulling it caused massive meltdowns outside school (even in the playground when he got to us) and him escaping the school ect (yeah escaping school wasnt seen as there being an issue) I warned the school that they need to put things in place as I seen he was breaking down more and more but they never done and after 3 years of constant bulling, having his head split open ect he started reacting back to them and hes acting out more and more hes now p5 and only last year did they involve the educational psychologist. It's ridiculous how little help is out there. Lockdown he was great a few odd meltdowns but now hes having meltdowns daily. If I was smart enough and had the time I would homeschool but it's impossible in the current climate.

    This touched a nerve. I wish past teachers and child specialists worked together back in the 80s. It's not that these kids wish to be naughty but they are dealing with adult issues in the home and they are calling for help as they are not old enough to process what's being dished out. My heart goes out to these little lost kids. I hope life gets better for them.

    I'm so sorry to my past teachers, I didn't know how to ask for the help needed as I didn't understand my situation.

    something is seriously wrong with the girl featured in the thumbnail, her eyes are emtpy. she's obviously very mean.
    stop letting kids act this way. since physical punishment was banned in some areas ive noticed kids are in more trouble, wont listen, wont work, wont get an education.
    the system has allowed kids to tell the parents what to do.

    Maybe there really is something to all those shots damaging their brains. I'm an 80's baby and we didn't act like that but we also didn't get all of those shots. Our homes, as a rule, were no less broken and parents no less busy either. You can't fix brain damage by disciplining it. If these kids as a whole are suffering from subclinical brain damage is not a matter of won't but can't. They can't control themselves. Maybe they need to really go back and look at that.
