The study investigated the choice of behaviour management techniques amongst primary school teachers. Three research questions and three null hypotheses guided the study.  A structured questionnaire was developed and used to elicit information from 163 primary school teachers in the Obollo-Afor Education zone of Enugu State.  Mean and standard deviation were used to answer the research questions.  t-test  statistics was used to test the first hypothesis while Analysis of Variance (ANOVA) was used to analyse the second and third hypotheses. Findings of the study revealed the behaviour management techniques used by practicing teachers in the zone and showed that there is a significant difference in the teacher’s choice of these techniques due to teachers gender, educational qualification and age.
