Research shows that children do not outgrow challenging behavior, which make early intervention essential for early childhood educators. What can you do to reduce challenging behaviors when nothing seems to work?
From affirmations to aromatherapy, this book is filled with creative strategies and techniques to address and adjust problematic behavior in the early childhood classroom, while promoting resilience and active engagement in learning. It looks at the latest behavioral research to hone in on the most effective methods and presents early educators with a variety of options to manage problematic behavior. Creative solutions range from the simple (a sealed plastic bag filled with hair gel to calm the class wiggle worm) to the more complex (bolstering a child’s resiliency to prevent disruptive behavior from the start).
Rather than simply providing solutions for the toughest behavioral problems, it explains why certain strategies are successful and others are not, what helps children develop a growth mindset, and how to develop an intervention plan.
