Teachers have to deal with various emotional and behavioral difficulties/disorders daily in the classroom. As behavior is interpreted by subjective and social factors, problematic behavior in school is a way of students' reaction to situations that take place in the classroom and to teachers’ attitudes, thus showing their desire to relate to him/her with a more substantial bond. In these difficult adjustment conditions, the teacher is called upon to help students develop their academic skills and manage their emotions by finding solutions. This article is a literature review investigating emotional and behavioral difficulties/disorders that appear in the classroom, the management of these difficulties/disorders by the teacher to prevent them, the influence of teachers' attitudes on students’ behavior and academic achievement, the implementation of appropriate intervention programs, and the role of ICTs in controlling such difficulties/disorders.
