This guide is a reference manual and tool in one for helping change children?s common misbehaviors in the preschool setting. Teachers, caregivers and parents will find the answers they need to typical, yet often complex, behaviors. The author addresses 42 definitive behaviors organized into seven categories and offers detailed advice for such situations. Author Eva Essa, Ph.D. addresses aggressive, disruptive, destructive, dependent, non-participatory, eating and multiple problem behaviors. She skillfully describes step-by-step procedures for changing the challenging behavior by starting with observation and consideration of the implications of the behaviors then offering alternatives, which may provide simple solutions. To put to use what the reader has learned, the author has included a special section called Your Turn in which a hypothetical scenario is presented for contemplation and discussion. And, finally, Essa has compiled a list of references including Web sites, books and articles for further study.
