Here is a link to a very helpful article if you are having behavioral issues with your child, either at home or school. My philosophy is always to CONNECT with understanding BEFORE attempting to CORRECT behavior. Empathy is important, so your children know you care about them, not just their behavior.By understanding why they are acting the way they are you can help them find better ways to meet their needs. In this article, Sarah Major says: " Believe it or not, most children don’t misbehave because they are “bad” kids. Most often, there are underlying emotions that they just don’t have the tools to cope with." The article give "some feelings underlying bad behavior at school."
