I think we all would be well served to remember that when it comes to helping our students improve, train behaviors, or establish regimens, we can’t just break a bad habit, we must replace it with a good habit. That certainly seems obvious, but all too often I catch myself working diligently to do the former while forgetting to do the latter. I’m sure it happens because we’re always fighting the clock, or that we have a thousand things we’re trying to remember at the same time. Well, whatever the cause, we should remember that just breaking a bad habit leaves a void that might be filled with an even worse habit. In short, we simply have to get in the “habit” of replacing bad habits we are trying to break with good habits we want to instill.
