4.You cannot not communicate You don't only communicate with language but by your behavior, your posture and your voice… Each one of your movements convey a message. Children are more aware of these messages than you think and they give meaning to them. A single look could mean: "you're a bad boy", or "I love you". Beware of all messages you convey because you cannot not communicate.
5.Everyone has all resources to succeed in learning. Albert Einstein, Thomas Edison, Leonardo de Vinci, Pablo Picasso had two things in common. They had learning disabilities and they were geniuses. In spite of their problems, they used all resources they need to realize their dreams, to learn and achieve. Being aware that every child has all resources he needs to succeed will allow us to love him or her so much better. The more you love a child, more you will help him realize his potential.
6.Actions are not person
The student or child you're dealing with is unique and personal worth of individual is held constant. But naturally, children's behavior is sometimes questionable. This is when we must distinguish between "You're stupid" and "what you've just done is stupid". Learn how to make difference between behavior and identity. Let this principle be reflected in your language.
I've made these principles mine and I've seen many changes in my life and in others. Do same thing with children you raise or teach. I can promise you that you'll see things that you've never seen before.
