One of the most overwhelming responsibilities of all early childhood educators is helping children learn to manage their behavior while also helping children learn how to express their emotions in a positive way to help them get their needs met. As teachers, we probably have all heard children being described as having “challenging behavior”, but have you ever wondered what this term means? Unfortunately, there is no universally accepted definition of “challenging behavior” among health and mental health professionals. However, challenging behaviors can be described as repeated patterns of behavior that interfere with a child’s ability to learn and be engaged in pro-social interactions. It might be helpful to think about whether a particular behavior is typical for children at a particular age or developmental stage.
We here at H&H Child Care Training offer classes on challenging behaviors to help teachers become better equipped in learning how to address those behaviors in an age-appropriate manner.
