There is always a reason for a child’s behaviour and it is our job as their caregivers to uncover where it’s coming from; to always be trying to understand it within the context of each individual child.Written by Ana Cassidy, Early Childhood Educator & Author
No two children have the same exact experience in any given situation. Once you get to know each child, you understand where their behaviour stems from. Each one is unique and as such, they all react to any given situation differently. Some children thrive on adult attention and will often seek us out to play with them one-on-one. Others may have us rescue them from a situation they don’t yet have the confidence they can solve for themselves. We, of course, are always better off guiding them through their challenges as opposed to just solving them for them.
