From Holly Delgado Early Childhood Specialist at HighScope Educational Research Foundation. Proactive Solutions to Challenging Behaviors, A daily conversation between my husband and my kindergartener. My husband Max time to put that away and do school work. Max NOOOOO I don t want to do it, Then CRASH STOMP BOOM as Max flings his toy across the room and stomps away. During this time of school closure and disrupted routine our three children have become increasingly less tolerant and more explosive when asked. to complete simple tasks We suddenly are faced with a refusal to eat what we are serving for dinner a deep sigh when asked to let out the dog. and an angry defiance when requested to clean their bedroom These behaviors although not unusual for young children are becoming more. frequent the longer we remain cooped up with limited outlets for interactions with anyone and anything beyond the four walls of our small home. So how do we deal with these challenging behaviors What can my husband and I do to prevent a simple request from turning into a major. It is important to remember all behavior is ultimately a form of communication When a child yells stomps throws or runs away they are telling. us that they are not okay In that moment they might be upset disappointed or overwhelmed Their emotions may have gotten the best of them. They may lack the ability to verbally describe the problem and instead are acting out their feelings. The behaviors that we as adults often view as disobedience or defiance might actually be a call for help Instead of becoming escalated alongside. our child we need to shift our focus to understand the source of behavior As the adult we need to maintain a calm and supportive environment. In our home we have found transition warnings and the use of visuals helpful Instead of springing expectations on our son my husband now. provides him with a countdown Max You have two more minutes to play before it is time to work Because time is an abstract concept using a. visual timer such as a sand timer egg timer or a downloadable app on a cell phone or tablet has helped Max manage his remaining time before. he is required to move to the next activity A visual schedule of our day also helps establish a routine and set our expectations For more information. about how to create a visual schedule at home visit https 360 coradvantage com. We have also found building breaks into Max s day opportunities for him to either tune out or exert physical energy helps reduce his frustration. and limits his outbursts It has become extremely important that my husband and I watch his body language during the time he is engaged in. academic or required tasks When he starts to become fidgety or whiney we know that it is time to shift gears At that point we say something. like Let s finish one more problem and then take a break In addition to raising our awareness we have also empowered Max to ask for his own. breaks By honoring his request we help him gain self awareness and advocacy skills as well as let him know we value and trust his judgement. Encouraging children to make choices is another way to reduce challenging behaviors and help children maintain a sense of control As adults we. can offer two or three acceptable options and offer them to children as choices The following are some examples we have used this past week in. It is quiet time You can choose a book or a puzzle. Do you want to do your math or reading work first, Would you like broccoli or green beans. Do you want to go outside to play now or after we practice writing. Whatever strategies you choose to use stick with them Consistency is key in finding a new normal It may seem hard in the beginning but it will. become easier on both you and your child over time And when you feel like it is tough remember tomorrow is a new day You got this.
