This article provides information on how parents and teachers might need to work together to form a positive behavior support plan in order to redirect the child’s challenging behavior by replacing those skills with socially acceptable skills. The article provides an example situation involving a three year old with challenging behavior and the efforts taken by her teacher and parents to replace her challenging behavior with the skills desired by both parties. The authors go on to discuss in detail the important aspects of what the teacher did to help the parents in dealing with the child’s challenging behavior such as the importance of family involvement, working together (the parents and teacher), and establishing a behavior assessment that would help determine what needed to be done to prevent the child from exhibiting the challenging behaviors.

- ... These problems include impulsive behaviors, lack of social skills, anxiety, depression and low self-esteem. These problems make it difficult for future success in school or work as they grow. (UNICEF) Emotional children may begin to feel helpless and start to separate from the crowd to avoid embarrassment. They have to deal with the looks and comments of people who are more fortunate talking down to them. There’s a feeling of helplessness and questions on why they have to be less fortunate. This may lead to counseling in more severe situations.... [tags: helping parents, government policies, charities]

- Millions of divorces are granted each year. Children whose parents divorced are more likely to divorce themselves, maintain poorer relations, and report being generally less happy with their lives (Brown 1999). Over 25% of all women will divorce within 10 years time, and a third of all first marriages disrupted within 10 years. Guldner and O'Connor (1991) said that “where possible, group therapy for dealing with problems of children of divorce is the treatment of choice”. Group therapy with kids focuses on helping them to feel like they're not alone, connect with and learn from others, receive peer validation and support, and normalize experiences (Gladding, 2005)....

Later, researcher Robert Carkhuff, expanded the theory to eight factors associated with helping. These factors were empathy, respect, warmth, genuineness, self-disclosure, confrontation, immediacy and concreteness (Brazier, 1996). The core dimension I would like to focus on in this essay is that of Respect. I believe respect is paramount to the core dimensions of helping.... [tags: Health care, Patient, Health care provider]

- There are many solutions for helping childhood obesity, but some of them may be shams just to get our money. Which solutions are worthwhile to help our children struggling with their weight. Maybe Greg Critser, writer of “Too Much of a Good Thing”, has a few opinions on what some of the solutions suggest. Critser thinks that maybe the parents are to blame for their children’s eating habits. He talks about what promotes children to eat more, for example, they don’t know when they are full, and when they are full, they just may want to feel like a rebel when their parents are away, and attack the pantry....

- The theory which contributes to the theme is John Bowlby’s attachment theory. “Bowlby used the term maternal deprivation to refer to the separation or loss of the mother as well as failure to develop an attachment”, Mcleod, (2007). Bowlby’s attachment theory is relevant to children and young people’s development. In order for children to develop, they need to have secure attachments, as those children with secure attachments, are better able to explore the environment freely and confidently.

- My prior understanding of discipline was uneducated and inaccurate. I was certain that discipline was related to punishment and the goal was to have a particular unwanted behavior to cease. A child that required discipline would be singled out, scolded, forced to perform a chore or action, such as sit for a time out, or the child would have something taken away, such as television or toys. As a child, I grew up in a household with parents who were primarily authoritative. They tended to be fair; however they did use punishment through "grounding", which generally meant that we were not able to engage in fun for set period of time.... [tags: Elementary Eduacation]
