reward, this could make the child act out throughout the week as they know they wouldn?t get a toy at the end of the week. Observation 3 Within my observation Tc walks in the room looking for his favourite car, TC notices another C1 playing with their car, TC snatches the car, C1 starts crying, A goes and talks to TC and explains that it?s not nice snatching toys from other children. Tc waits for A to leave the room and fights over the toy from C1, the car wheels break off and C1 starts crying again. A tells TC to go and sit on the time out table in the corner. This behaviour strategy is called assertive discipline Assertive discipline helps the child understand what?s wrong and right, while being on time out the child is asked to reflect the behaviour and talk to their practitioner afterwards explaining what they did wrong and apologise to those involved. The effectiveness of assertive discipline is that it encourages children to display good behaviour or else they have to take time out, most children prefer to play with the friends than having a time out, it also makes children aware of the consequences, before displaying a negative behaviour. Effectiveness is that it teaches children to follow rules and respect their practitioner as they are listening to them and following the rules. Although assertive discipline helps keep a child in control it also has some negative aspects as the child could feel like the practitioner doesn?t like them and would feel ...read more.


There are limitations for using these methods for example questionnaires may not work with every parents as some may not know English as they may have come from a different country or they may not know how to read which can cause some difficulty for them to communicate with teachers and other professionals about their child behaviour. The child may act out because they may have a different set of rules they follow at home based on their culture and language barrier. An example is if a parent has hearing difficulty the child may tap them to get their attention but when in school they?ll get in trouble for tapping people. Another method that has some limitation is the reward chart, some children may feel like they are being treated unfair, as they always behave in class but don?t get a reward for their good behaviour the other children may start acting out as they will think they?ll get rewards when they start behaving again. When observing behaviour it?s important as a practitioner that you use a holistic approach which is when you look at everything as a whole, so not focusing on one section such as physical development but to focus on all of the aspects which are social, physical, mental and spiritual development. When observing the child?s behaviour you also have to keep in mind who?s around the child so the influences and interactions involving the child.
