Students are young and they need structure, but it is vital to be patient and flexible with them all along the way. I always start by explaining the consequences of any action they commit. Professionally, I never had the chance to discipline students. The vice-principal or principal of the school dealt with the disciplining, though I would make sure that it did not involve anything physical. I would always meet with the students and talk about what happened to them and how we could move forward. This meant discussing actions, thought processes, and setting goals or pathways to make a better decision for the future and keep them from facing trouble again.

Note: At-risk students have the tendency to start using drugs and alcohol at an early age. Your duty as a guidance counselor is to facilitate alcohol and drug prevention programs. Read our school counselor interview questions and answers to understand more.
