Consistency is key with regards to managing behaviour, especially when it’s children’s behaviour that we’re trying to manage. Establishing rules and respect is a must, both at home and also within any childcare or educational setting. Managing behaviour and discipline, and promoting positivity, are essential skills for any childcare practitioner, and this course can help you to develop confidence in this area.
Improve a Child’s Behaviour with Positivity
A child’s behaviour can be affected by all manner of things, from something as simple as illness, tiredness or a poor diet, to other more serious causes, such as neglect, poor attachment and abuse. Whatever the reason for a child’s poor behaviour, managing it in a positive way is the key to improving the situation, and as a childcare practitioner, it’s your duty to ensure that children have the opportunity to develop their emotional, behavioural and social skills to improve their behaviour.
