Behavior management is one of the most popular and important topics in early childhood education. Nothing makes parents and teachers more frustrated than an inability to understand and manage a young child's behavior. People involved with children need reassurance that behavior can be improved, and they want to increase their understanding of why children behave inappropriately and what to do about it.

This one-hour course will help you deepen your understanding of the nature and principles of effective behavior management of young children. You will learn some of the basic concepts behind why children behave the way they do and how adults can affect children's behaviors in a way that is safe, positive — and works.
