Releasing tension in class

One day, one of my students suddenly misbehaved. He frequently put up his right hand to answer the questions I asked to test the students on the lessons taught earlier. Not only once did he argue about his being correct when the answer he provided was wrong. Suddenly he shouted, "I don't want to study anymore because whatever I say is wrong.'

Later I summoned to the staff room and talked to him personally. From our conversion I really he was undergoing great tension because of family problems. His father was about to leave his mum for another woman. He would not accept the divorce of his parents and he could nothing about it. Hence he released his tension through making his presence felt in place.
