  1. Divide the answer into suitable paragraphs
  2.  Highlight the topic sentences.

All children misbehave from time to time. This is a normal part of childhood. In some schools, however, student conduct creates serious problems. Some children violently beat other students and substance abuse is also a concern. In order to solve behavioural problems such as these, first of all, it is necessary to understand the causes. Students’ home life and the atmosphere of the school they attend may contribute to their extreme behaviour. Some students come from unsettled families. Their parents may be divorced or there may be domestic violence or some other issues in the home. These students may have trouble coping with their situations and may resort to drugs or violence as a release. Alternatively, some schools do not control children effectively. Some children will play up when given this chance, and others will copy them.  Mothers and fathers are chiefly responsible for teaching their children right from wrong. They need to be aware of what their children are doing and to treat their children firmly but fairly. Most parents do a good job in this regard. However, some families have problems that can impact on children. In such cases, the parents should inform the school of any problems so that they can give these children the extra support they need.  Teachers have a duty to ensure students conduct themselves properly while at school. They need to make students aware of what is acceptable and what is not, and deal with any inappropriate behaviour immediately. First of all, they could warn a pupil who was doing the wrong thing. If the misbehaviour continued, the teacher should implement some type of punishment. For example, they could give the student a detention or ban him/her from participating in school sports.  To sum up, family problems and a poor school atmosphere can lead to problems with student behaviour. However, these problems can be overcome if parents and teachers work together.

All children misbehave from time to time. This is a normal part of childhood. In some schools, however, student conduct creates serious problems. Some children violently beat other students and substance abuse is also a concern. In order to solve behavioural problems such as these, first of all, it is necessary to understand the causes.

Students’ home life and the atmosphere of the school they attend may contribute to their extreme behaviour. Some students come from unsettled families. Their parents may be divorced or there may be domestic violence or some other issues in the home. These students may have trouble coping with their situations and may resort to drugs or violence as a release. Alternatively, some schools do not control children effectively. Some children will play up when given this chance, and others will copy them.  

Mothers and fathers are chiefly responsible for teaching their children right from wrong. They need to be aware of what their children are doing and to treat their children firmly but fairly. Most parents do a good job in this regard. However, some families have problems that can impact on children. In such cases, the parents should inform the school of any problems so that they can give these children the extra support they need.

Teachers have a duty to ensure students conduct themselves properly while at school. They need to make students aware of what is acceptable and what is not, and deal with any inappropriate behaviour immediately. First of all, they could warn a pupil who was doing the wrong thing. If the misbehaviour continued, the teacher should implement some type of punishment. For example, they could give the student a detention or ban him/her from participating in school sports.  

To sum up, family problems and a poor school atmosphere can lead to problems with student behaviour. However, these problems can be overcome if parents and teachers work together.
