Our expert says:
Where ( and it sounds like this may be the case ) you have kids whose parents have been too mean to give them the gift of discipline, and who have been inadvertently trained to thrive on being disruptive, its not really practical to change such bad behaviour within the short time-scale of a class, when it is probably reinforced so strongly at home. Maybe you could have a word with the mother, reminding her that they are disruptive in your classes and at school, limiting how much they can learn and reducing the enjoyment of others, too. Remind her that without a proper code o discipline at home, these kids are almost certain to run into bigger and bigger problems in life. If she can aford dance lessons, she can afford to take them to see a child psychologist, and learn with expert help how to teach them the discipline and simple manners that they so greatly need.
