Five Things to Remember With Challenging Behavior

Martin Dearlove posted the following things to remember when dealing with challenging behavior which I totally agree with:

1. Don’t take it personally. It’s not about you.

2. The behaviors are challenging. The child is not.

3. De-escalating first. Problem solving later.

4. Sometimes we might not see it, but there’s always a reason.

5. Have empathy. Just imagine what the child is going through.
