This article defends the role of the Christian educator in reaching the difficult student. It further offers tips for handling the challenging student from a Christian perspective, coupled with tried-and-true research using the acronym PRAISE: being proactive, using reinforcements, assessing and analyzing the intent of misbehavior, being sincere, and empowering students and the Holy Spirit in them.
