Background of the Study
Children and adults respectively are found to be reactive in character and behaviour at times. Mostly, children of nowadays as a result of their quick exposure to social networks, media networks, electronics and printed media tends to quickly emulate and adapt to certain way of life such as fighting, bullying, telling lies, restiveness, loitering among others which conjunctively amount to disruptive behaviour. However, this may be informed by the rate at which they are exposed to some violent movies, plays, among others. In many public primary schools in the contemporary society and Asaba Central Education Authority in particular, there have been report of alarming rate of lack of attention among the pupils. In this effect, teachers and significant others have been reporting the alarming rate of this lack of attention exhibited by primary school pupils to be on the increase and as well its obstructions to teaching and learning process. This trend continues to deteriorate and metamorphose to other forms of antisocial acts/demeanours and deviations from societal norms and values such as thuggery, stealing, kidnapping, assassination, among others for lack of proper attention/orientation and management to ameliorate the aforementioned issues in order to catch them (pupils) young in the classrooms.
However, every Society across the globe had always had interest in the ways in which their young ones are prepared and how they learn to take active part in civic life (Anih and Ogoke, 2014). Buttressing further, the authours noted that education has been often conceived to mean the activities of the teacher and learners in a school environment which is narrow and misconception of education since what takes place in the school is a fraction of education.
