1 Methods for Dealing With Inappropriate Behaviors of Toddlers 5.03

2 Guiding Toddlers’ Behavior Set a good example Set limits Meet toddlers’ needs instead of punishing Show love for toddler Give the toddler respect Be consistent

3 Punishment Decide whether misbehavior is intentional or unintentional. Use punishment to remind children that appropriate behavior is important and to teach them the consequences of poor decisions. First offense = warning Keep punishment reasonable for age

4 Natural Consequences Avoid lecturing the child Avoid replacing item ruined by behavior Avoid taking care of the situation for a child

5 Logical Consequences Connect consequences to misbehavior Be prepared to follow through with consequences Loss of privilege Time-out – Number of minutes = age – Ex. - 3 years old = 3 minutes of time out

6 Less Effective Responses Avoid using these!! Bribery Making child promise to behave Shouting and yelling Shaming and belittling Threatening to withhold love Be consistent

7 Specific Inappropriate Behaviors Contrariness – Use pretend games Temper Tantrums – Put expectations in positive statements Hitting – Guide child toward choices – Use pretend games

8 Authoritarian Parent Strict, expects students to obey without question Responds quickly and firmly to rules that are broken

9 Democratic Parent Gets input from child for rules and limits Children have freedom of choice

10 Permissive Parent Gives child lots of freedom Lets child set own rules Teaches child to think for himself/herself
