Positive and negative behavior are actually two different sides of the same coin. Children display what we refer to as challenging behavior because haven’t developed the social, emotional, language, and cognitive skills yet to behave positive ways.
As Canonsburg-PA childcare professionals, we see the challenging behavior as an opportunity for the child to learn. Our responses to challenging behaviors can teach children the necessary skills to behave in properly. In addition, we work to eliminate challenging behaviors by creating classrooms environment that are developmentally appropriate for the age of the children in that classroom. Also, by establishing daily routines that will allow the children to excel.
Understanding Our Children
Understanding that children need to learn appropriate social skills just as they need to learn math, literacy, and science skills! If a 3-year-old is pinching, it is not because he is a “bad boy” but because perhaps he needs to learn how to communicate his frustration in more constructive and positive ways. If a 2-year-old is not listening, it’s not to make you angry, but because she needs to learn efficient ways to deal with anxiety.
