Teaching Positive Behavior

July 5, 2011

The Long Beach Press-Telegram article No Bullying by Kelly Puente got me thinking about how to get our preschoolers to behave nicely with other kids in their daycare classes and on the playground. The PeaceBuilders program sounds like a good way…. Here’s a Kansas study for Positive Behavior Support. I also have many more links from my post I wrote in 2009 on reducing toddler behavior problems.

Reducing Toddler Behavior Problems

November 18, 2009

Sometimes the best of our children or grandchildren get into what we adults would call ‘bad behavior situations.’ Sometimes it seems we’ve tried everything to straighten it out — but the bad behavior continues. Here is some interesting on-line reading to ponder over and to maybe give you some fresh ideas or concepts to try if you have a little one you are working with.

Ethics for Toddlers

November 17, 2009

Today’s radio commentary by Michael Josephson isn’t on his website yet. – It was about instilling ethics and building character in the very young by example and struck me as a topic for my blog tonight – but this story is close. – Or maybe today’s been such a bad day that this was the lesson and I don’t remember any more!

Here are some other interesting links to read up on how to help your toddler develop a good character:

ERIC Character Development: Encouraging Self-Esteem & Self-Discipline in Infants, Toddlers, and Two-Year-Olds

Top 5 Principles For Helping Your Child Build A Good Character

Effective Character Building Tips

Character Building Lesson Plans

Building Self Esteem

Most important is what your toddler sees you doing – actions speak louder than words – and whatever you do, your toddler wants to do, too!

I Do It!

September 21, 2009

A friend of mine from Colorado with a two and a half year old boy said today that she just realized the pertinence of my book Grandpa, Do It! I Do It, Too!. All of a sudden he is is saying “Daddy do it!” or “Mommy do it!” or “I do it!” There are examples everywhere! They’re everywhere! They’re everywhere! This article on early exploration is from www.explorationsearlylearning.com. Jo@Mylestones shares an I Do It Too! moment. Ask Dr Sears.com has a good page of information, too, on dependence, independence and interdependence.
