Poster #740– Student Behavior Management Poster That Teaches Self-Control


Poster #740

Here’s a student behavior management poster that really grabs students’ attention and delivers an effective and unforgettable message to improve conduct and self-control.

This poster says “The first rules of holes: When you’re in one, stop digging.”

Those words were chosen with care by our experts who designed this hard-hitting masterpiece. This poster is just so unusual and so unexpected. That may be part of why we hear back all the time that this poster really works well to reduce misconduct and incidents of lost self-control. The words on the poster are just so different and out of the norm that students have to pause to understand what the words mean. As they think about the words, they strive to understand the words. When students finally grasp the concept, you have delivered your “keep it together, stay in control” message.

You have probably already noticed that it’s usually the same students repeatedly losing self-control, breaking rules or engaging in acts of misconduct. That means that the same students are repeatedly the ones struggling to have acceptable conduct in the classroom and throughout the school. You’ve also surely noticed that these students tend to repeat the same problem behaviors over and over again. Wouldn’t it be great to have a poster that could help break that pattern? That’s where Poster #740 fits in.

Poster #740 is designed specifically to help reduce repetitive problem behaviors by introducing the concept of “stop digging” once you’re already in a hole. How do we know this approach works? We know because Youth Change Workshops doesn’t just randomly or haphazardly create school and classroom posters like other companies. We don’t focus on whether the poster will sell or if it will have wide appeal. Those are the concerns of other companies, but not us. We care about making good tools that work better than what already exists. We don’t care about sales. We care about making posters that reach students and help them become all they can be.

Here at Youth Change, we know all about children and teens who struggle. Youth Change Workshops annually trains thousands of teachers, counselors, social workers, psychologists, court workers, juvenile detention staff and foster parents on how to best manage hard-to-manage and poorly behaved students. Our methods are tested in the trenches with students just like yours. In addition, unlike nearly all other poster sellers, our posters are not crafted by graphic designers who know a lot about art and very little about children and teens who struggle. Our posters are crafted by experts in education, counseling, juvenile justice and behavior management. So, if you’re searching for a student behavior management poster that teaches self-control and acceptable conduct, Poster #740 is the absolute right pick for you because it was made for you by experts on student behavior management.
