Behavior

Overview

Behavior is the way we act in response to different situations and/or environments. All behaviors have a reason and children use behaviors to express something. As parents we could observe the behavior to see what’s really happening.

Simple ideas to help a child who has challenging behaviors include effective instructions, modifying strategies and timeout.
