They are specialized people and quite efficient in dealing such kind of behaviors. . then he/she can consult a good counselor and psychiatrist also. long before they give rise to the crime. For parents the most important thing in this world is to take care of their children. Student profiling is an approach that many schools authorities are considering in order to avoid school violence in the schools. Although nothing specific like crystal ball is available that can easily predict about the violent attitude of the children in advance. but still school authorities are trying their best to devise ways that can determine the violent attitude among children. They really don’t want to take a stake on their life. Now you must be thinking that what exactly student profiling is? A checklist of personal characteristics and behavior of youths who have carried out violence is used to measure the potential of the individual student for behaving in the violent manner. School violence has become a great concern for the teachers and schools. They are seeking ways by which they are able to know which student is having the possibility of crossing the line of violence in future. If required. It is a problem that is known to almost everyone. If large number of personal characteristics and behavior that are present on the list are true for a single student then it might be possible that the student can commit violent act in the future. Some people are seeing student profiling as a great tool but others feel that it is not at all a promising technique. the school authorities can instruct parents and teachers to take extra care of that student and proper guidance and support should be given to him/her. Schools are adopting this technique of student profiling so as to save children from dreadful school violence.Student profiling for school violence School violence needs no introduction. If schools are able to figure out that a particular student can act violently in future then they can devise ways to reduce the violence. School violence has created so much panic among Americans that they are even scared of sending their kids to schools. The basic idea behind such kind of activity is to find out the potential offenders. To stop a student from doing violent act.

If students are aware about all these facts then there are more chances that they will not get indulged in these kinds of painful activities.Schools should start programs that provide learning to students on all three levels that are emotional. communicating properly. Aim of the school is to tell students the benefits of thoughtful decision making. social and academic. It is the duty of the schools to provide right kind of learning and education to the children and if they fail to do so then there is no need of having schools. It is true that if they know the difference of good and bad then they will not perform any kind of violent acts in schools. . understanding the importance of feelings of themselves as well as of others. So schools should pay extra attention on these issues and must try to reduce them. understanding the importance of life and understanding the aim of life etc.

Training of teachers should also be arranged regularly by the institutions involved in order to avoid violent behavior portrayed by the students. the counselor can then guide her/him on career. Regular meetings should be arranged by the school administration and teachers in order to monitor the student’s habits. Appointment of a psychiatrist or a good counsel should be done by the school management. If a nation is interested in development. to be able to give a proper image and brighter future to the school and the country. it is its duty to take proper actions against the child. Therefore. Understanding the nature of the child and knowing ways to handle them on basis of each child’s requirements should be taught. knives and pistol. personal and social issues. These assist a student in learning how to solve problems related to anger management and interact with others. When a student is full of stress or any other type of problem. Children are the future leaders of our country and play a vital role when it comes to building the country’s future. The school management should have proper means of dealing with school violence cases. Such measures may include acquisition of good facilities for guards at the entrance of the school and installation of metal detectors for them to use in detecting any weapons such as guns. For example. The meetings should involve both the children and their parents and discussions on how to understand the child’s behavior should be openly talked about. each institution should have strict measures. School violence can be prevented using many ways. It should be made clear on how to deal with issues like a violent child dealing with a great quantity of stress or depression. For a country to be at the top and free from violence. If any case is reported to the management. meditation classes should be arranged in schools in order to get rid of any signs of depression and stress. On the other hand. Hence. The counselor is in a position to understand the problems of the child and hence gives the appropriate answer on the issue. which are worth adopting in trying to prevent school violence. activities such as school violence must be stopped at once.Institutional programs for prevention of school violence Cases of violence in schools are proving to be such a hazard in the recent period and are proving to be a great problem for the state too. It requires a lot of practice because it is a blend of different religions. a school should arrange classes on anger management and conflict management. then it must put a spotlight on the activities that children are involved in order to improve on the children’s behavior. These kinds of weapons should not be allowed in schools and restrictions should be made on the use of such weapons. This does not only cause harm to the parents and teachers but also to other students as well. it is very important for the school to appoint qualified professionals so that they prevent all kinds of violence in institutions . One can relax her /his mind by thinking deeper through this way.
