Children are often misunderstood when it comes to their behaviour. It’s crucial to recognize that behaviour is not a child’s “fault,” but rather a way of expressing their emotions. At Podar Prep Kindergarten, we believe in creating an environment where every child’s emotional well-being is understood and nurtured. Let’s explore the reasons behind a child’s behaviour and how our teachers at Podar Prep support parents in understanding and addressing negative behaviour.
Reasons for a Child’s Behavior:
Children display various types of behaviour, and it’s important to recognize the underlying reasons as it can help parents and teachers provide appropriate guidance and support.
- Aggressive Behaviour: Aggressive behaviour, such as hurting others, punching, biting, or throwing objects, is often a result of frustration, anger, or a lack of effective communication skills. At Podar Prep, we work closely with parents to help children channel their emotions in healthier ways, teaching them problem-solving techniques and fostering empathy.
- Antisocial Behaviour: Antisocial behaviour, including using inappropriate language or name-calling or refusing to share, can be a child’s way of seeking attention or asserting independence. Our teachers engage children in activities that promote positive social interactions, cooperation, and effective communication skills to encourage appropriate behaviour.
- Disruptive Behaviour: Disruptive behaviour, such as shouting in class, tearing books, or breaking toys, may stem from feelings of restlessness, boredom, or a need for control. At Podar Prep, we provide a structured environment that balances learning and play, encouraging children to express themselves constructively and find healthy outlets for their energy.
- Inappropriate Expression: Excessive crying, pouting, or whining can be signs of emotional distress or an inability to communicate their needs effectively. Our teachers create a safe and nurturing space where children feel comfortable expressing their emotions, encouraging them to use words and alternative methods to express their feelings.
At Podar Prep:
We believe that by addressing the root causes of behaviour, we can guide children towards healthier emotional expression. Our experienced educators collaborate with parents, providing insights and strategies to support children’s emotional development and promote positive behaviour.
Teachers are also equipped with various Behaviour Management techniques for implementation in the classroom with children that includes Jumbo Sig Language for communication, conflict resolution steps in case of fights among children and Golden Values for discussion of the appropriate and accepted behaviour at school.
Understanding children’s behaviour is a crucial step in fostering their emotional well-being. At Podar Prep Preschool, we emphasise recognizing behaviour as an expression of emotions rather than blaming the child. Together, we can help children develop the social and emotional skills necessary for their overall growth and success.
