Maintaining positive social interactions with peers and adults, having good social skills, and controlling one’s urges are linked to success at school. Students with behavioural problems are also more at risk of having trouble academically, of dropping out, and of exhibiting delinquency and social integration problems.

Courses of effective action

  • Put social skills development workshops in place for all children starting in early childhood.
  • Involve parents in all actions related to their children’s behaviour.
  • Systematically screen youth as soon as they enter school to take early action.
  • Implement measures that reward positive behaviour and reinforcement.
  • Offer extracurricular activities that attract such youth and that give them a chance to work hard, invest themselves, and experience success.
