Finding the time to fill in the paperwork or records and dealing with the students is the most common issue raised with this system, but remember: If a behaviour isn't recorded, it never happened
It is important to keep behaviours in perspective and not to let them accumulate until you explode. Dealing with the behaviours yourself is essential to building relationships and boundaries.
It is not the length of the sanction or its severity that will change the student's behaviour in the future, it is consistency and how the time is used that it crucial.
A short word after a lesson may be all that is needed to reset the relationship and expectations for the next lesson. So a planned, private five minute conversation can have a more positive impact on the child than more punitive measures
Trying to avoid using revenge tactics is also an issue which causes problems as well as statements like:
It's not fair on the rest of the class I don't see why they should get special treatment We shouldn't be rewarding naughty children I don't see why they shouldn't follow the rules Why should my TA spend all her time with one naughty child?
