At the end of my tether

Presently, I'm employed at a government-run school, teaching young students from Prathom 4 through to 6 and the problem I encounter with almost every class, is a lack of respect, plus attention, demonstrated by the students. I've approached the H.O.D and related my concerns about said issue, who, to my surprise, confirmed that Thai teachers alike, also face the same problem.

So its seems that the situation is not an isolated one and on reflection, I'm not at fault or even alone and that the problem of disruptive students is a widespread thing. What I'm seeking, is help with feed-back on how best to approach and deal with the problem?
