How To Handle Disrespect


When I substitute teach, it’s fairly common for me to encounter a lack of respect – both from students and from staff.

Here are three ways I’m learning how to handle it. Which one stands out to you the most? How do you typically respond to disrespect?

1) Don’t take it personally, do remember it’s their problem.

2) Don’t react in kind, do respond in love.

3) Don’t let it detail you, do remain on mission.
