15 Things to remember about Behavior Management



15 Things to remember about Behavior Management:
 
1) Praise the action or decision, not the child
2) Provide positive recognition when good choices are made
3) If what you are doing is not working, change what you are doing
4) Never give sanctions in anger
5) Don't ignore inappropriate behaviour
6) Only give consequences when you are sure of what happened
7) You can accept a child while not accepting inappropriate behaviour
8) Never threaten what you are not prepared to carry out
9) We never learn resilience without facing frustrations
10) Our expectations will often determine a child's behaviour
11) Be patient with childish irresponsibilities but never with defiance and rebellion
12) What children say about how they feel is not necessarily so
13) After consequences are given out treat the child as if nothing has happened
14) Be authoritative not authoritarian
15) Watch your emotions, children are good at reading body language
