Beware the 'baddy' labels
If I need to ask a child to sit and listen, at our first meeting, the class will sometimes say: "Oh heshe is always naughty." However, I prefer to obtain this information before I ever meet the class from the teacher or a classroom assistant. Then the child can still be given the positive encouragement rightly advocated by Cheryl Maughan.
