Managing and Responding to Children's Behavior

Teaching staff help children manage their behavior by guiding and supporting children to play cooperatively with other children, use language to communicate needs, gain control of physical impulses, use problem-solving techniques, persist when frustrated and learn turn-taking. When teaching staff respond to a child’s challenging behavior, the following strategies are used:

· they provide for the safety of the child and for the safety of others in the classroom

· stay calm

· are respectful to the child

· provide the child with information on acceptable behavior.
