Successfully Working with Challenging Behaviors
Dr. Scott Noyes, of Empowering Programs, believes that taking great care of children is possibly the most difficult endeavor known. With that in mind, he asks, "Are children with difficult behaviors spoiled? Manipulative? Stubborn? Obstinate?" The problem with labels is that they imply that the behaviors are contemplated and intentional. Educators quickly find that the usual reward-and-punishment strategies do not work with these children and they often feel frustrated, overwhelmed, and exhausted. So what should we do? This session looks closely at these children and works to develop systems that help them, support educators, assists their classmates, and empower their parents.
