Draw on relationships with professional colleagues and students' families for continued guidance and support.

Parents, school personnel, and behavioral experts can provide insights and support for teachers for managing disruptive behavior in the classroom. Teachers should draw on these relationships when seeking ways to address individual students' behavior problems. Research has shown that drawing on relationships with colleagues and behavior experts can be an effective way for teachers to gain insights and advice about managing classroom behavior. Parents are also important partners in this process. Teachers should inform parents about concerns and intervention strategies used in the school, and parents can provide teachers with information about students' experiences at home.
