Remember that we all act in certain ways to meet our own needs. Children are no different and their behavior, or misbehavior, can be understood best if the underlying need or reason for their behavior is identified. A child misbehaves when one of the following behavioral needs are not being met
Have appropriate expectations for the child’s developmental age
Provide opportunities to experiment and satisfy curiosity
Inadequate or misunderstood instructions, they really are trying to do what was asked (too high of expectations). They are trying something new and do not realize what the consequences might be.
Give attention only to that which you want to be repeated and ignore questionable or undesirable behavior. Negative attention is still attention
Children want some power and control in their lives or they become upset over the amount of control others have over them and might rebel or assert a degree of power and control.
Working to hurt or “get even” for what they have been made to do or feel
Constantly correcting or giving negative reinforcement might make a kid quit trying because the are afraid of failing
Wanting to find a place in a family or peer group where they fit in. This place may be positive or negative, but the need is met
Firm: Consequences should be clearly stated and then adhered to when the inappropriate behavior occurs. Fair: The punishment should fit the crime. Also in the case of recurring behavior, consequences should be stated in advance so the child knows what to expect. Harsh punishment is not necessary. Using a simple Time Out can be effective when it is used consistently every time the behavior occurs. Also, use of reward for a period of time like part of a day or a whole day when no Time Outs or maybe only one Time Out is received. Friendly: Use a friendly but firm communication style when letting a child know they have behaved inappropriately and let them know they will receive the "agreed upon" consequence. Encourage them to try to remember what they should do instead to avoid future consequences. Work at "catching them being good" and praise them for appropriate behavior.
