8 Hurdles Students Commonly Face

Students live complicated lives. Sometimes as adults we tend to overlook this because we think that just because they are kids that their lives are less complicated. This is simply not true. The truth is that the lives of young people are internally complicated more than externally. This means that they are trying to find out who they are and dealing with changes in their emotional states. This can hinder their growth and their ability to study.

8 Hurdles Students Commonly Face

  1. Not being understood by teachers and authority figures.
  2. Not having enough help in challenge areas.
  3. Having problems communicating with teachers and other students.
  4. Lack of support from family and friends.
  5. Peer pressure to forego studying for other activities.
  6. Emotional changes that happen without notice.
  7. Feeling as though no one is on their side.
  8. Misinterpreting information and emotional signals from adults.

As role models we need to keep forefront in our minds these 8 hurdles that students go through on a daily basis. We must remember that these aren’t things that they can turn off or turn on. Each student is different and will be going through different stages of the internal roller coaster at any given time during different parts of the day. This will all depend on how they have been influenced leading up to that point. Therefore, our duty as teachers is to positively influence them in such a way that they know that someone is on their team and pulling for their success
