It’s that time of year! Summertime is just around the corner. State testing is over. It didn’t help that there was a full moon last night. The kids are getting antsy! This is the time when behavior starts to get a little bit (or a lotta bit) out of control…which leads us to this week’s question.
Of course, let me just preface this by saying that every kid is different. There are cases that can get severe. Sometimes it takes lots of trial and error and team meetings and professional intervention. This is just meant to be a few helpful tips and links to get you through the rest of the year. 🙂
-It’s always great to have an incentive system in place. I always like making much of the good behavior. Check out some of these cool ones that I found through Pinterest. Click “source” to take you to the pin.
- Be mindful of your own reaction.
- Maintain rational detachment.
- Be attentive.
- Use positive self-talk.
- Recognize your limits.
A = Antecedant (the event that happens before a behavior or what prompts the behavior)
B = Behavior (a response to events that can be seen or heard)
C = Consequence (the events that follow the behavior and effects whether the behavior will occur again).
Hope you find some of this helpful! Do any of you deal with problematic behaviors? Or maybe I’m the only one. 😉
