What Will You Learn from Positive Outcomes from Problematic Behaviors?
Challenging behavior in young children is any action that:
Is harmful to the children themselves
Is harmful to their peers or their teacher
directly disrupts the children’s ability to learn or play
While this type of behavior can be difficult to deal with as an early childhood educator, the term "challenging" does not imply that the teachers and unruly children must be at odds negatively impacting the classroom environment.
What causes challenging behavior in children varies. Though somepeople may attribute poor behavior to poor parenting or indicate that the children are simply "out of control," this is not always the case. Sometimes, this behavior may result from children trying to assert their independence or make sense of the world around them. In more extreme cases, a child could be suffering from a learning disability or physical problem and is acting out to express his or her discomfort or frustration.
Some of thetypical behaviors you may encounter include being stubborn, throwing tantrums, testing the rules, and attempting to bite or hit others. Typical behaviors are unlike challenging behaviors because they do go away over time due with guidance and support. Challenging behavior is not easily handled with typical discipline measures. Teachers can work closely with the children's parents and guidance counselors to implement a strict plan for how to handle this behavior. A uniform approach can be beneficial for all involved.
This is just one of the classes and resources ProSolutions Training offers to anyone seeking CDA renewal. We make the process seamless so they can complete the CDA renewal courses on their own time and at their own pace.
