What may affect childrens behaviour

Extracts from this document...

Introduction

Behaviour Task 2 What may affect childrens behaviour Separation from the childs main carer can affect the childs behaviour a lot if they find it hard to separate from them. If a child cries it is obvious they find it hard to cope with this, trying to distract the child may help the child to forget about the problem and start to enjoy themselves. The childrens developmental stage includes how they see themselves and how they are with other children. If the child finds it hard to share with another child as they may be an only child and never had to come across sharing before hand, it will be hard for them to understand this. Some of factors for development are: *Egocentricity: children that are egocentric tend to see things from their view point only. But they can be considerate towards others. If a child won't share his or her toys because they are all me, me, me if not told by an adult that it would be kind a nice to share their toys when they're older they still may be the same and they may find it hard to make friends. *Curiosity: the child may become curious as to how far they can push people to their limit to test them. The child may become defiant and negative towards others if they find it hard to except that their not the only child in the classroom. ...read more.

Using a chart with pictures on could help the child so then they could keep checking their chart to see what's going to happen next or later on in the day. The adult/role model is very important to the child's behavioural development. Encouraging positive behaviour will help with child's self-esteem and self-concept. B F Skinner believed that when praising children for doing something, the child will want to do it again and maybe even better then before. The child's development will also be improving because of positive reinforcement. Positive reinforcements helps children a lot when playing a game or doing a piece of work, because if you use this it will want to make the children do it more and also enjoy it more. If the CW came in and presented it as negative and says the children couldn't do it, the children wouldn't want to do it; or they wouldn't do it at all, or as well. B F Skinner, diploma book, pg. 191 states that Skinner developed a theory; he called it pleasant experiences positive reinforcements and bad experiences negative reinforcements. He also showed that by ignoring behaviour, the behaviour may disappear. And finally it's important for the CW to be a good role model around the children so then the children will know how and how not to behave. Managing behaviour The process of managing behaviour will include consistent approach, realistic expectations, use of goals and boundaries and recognising attendees. ...read more.

Conclusion

A bit like doing an event sample, repeating the observations if the problem keeps re-appearing. So then it might be an idea to go through it with the whole class of what we need to do at school, like taking turns, be kind to one another etc. Team approach and professionals Team approach is when everyone gets involved, the child parents, teachers, head teachers and may be even specific professionals depending on what the situation is about. If the child has a disability and is struggling being outside with the other children running around because they may have problems with theirs knees or bones etc. so then the childs physiotherapist may be invited to the team meeting so then the child may be needing more appointments for physio if the child is in pain when running about. Working with parents It is important to work with the parents in situations like this because they may be worried about their child may not be getting enough support whilst at school so having team meeting letting the teacher know how they feel and that they would like more done for their child whilst at school. 'Diploma book, Tassoni, P, pg. 291 states that there are specific types of unwanted behaviour that the early years settings have to deal with. Some behaviour shows that children are being affected by factors for example, a delay in their development. ...read more.
