Fifty Early Childhood Guidance Strategies presents an easy-to-use, easy-to-understand positive approach involving the young children themselves in eliminating their inappropriate behavior. Teachers and student teachers alike will quickly learn what to expect when children first enter the early childhood classroom, how to assess children's behavior, how to redirect it, and how to get children involved in controlling their own actions. The 50 strategies include appropriate child behavior categories such as communicating feelings and conflict conversion, inappropriate behavior categories such as possession conflicts and power struggles, and teacher concerns such as intervention (how and when) and time-out (using or not using). Each of the strategies is illustrated by photos taken by the author showing children and teachers engaged in the activities discussed. Children's art and appropriate books are also included where appropriate.
