"Spin-Doctor Parenting": 3 Causes of Misbehavior and What You Can Do About It

"Spin-Doctor Parenting": 3 Causes of Misbehavior and What You Can Do About It | Childcare | Scoop.it

"

What Causes Misbehavior? One of the questions I have asked myself as a mom, the question I am often asked as a therapist and the one that continually presents itself in my role as consultant to early childhood programming is, "What is causing this child to behave this way?"  Generally, this question is in relation to misbehavior.  Interesting how that happens, isn't it?  Seldom do we stop and ponder what is making children behave...even though we know that whatever we pay attention to, we get more of!

Barbara Hunter's curator insight, April 29, 2014 6:07 AM

If we can catch children at this age and help them to develop self-regulation skills, they will have a chance to break the cycle plaguing many in society today.  This is a program to watch for long-term success.
