Prevent disruptive behavior

before it occurs!

Are you a veteran teacher seeing more challenging behavior in your early childhood setting these days? Are you a new teacher who feels unprepared to deal with disruptive behavior? Are you frustrated by the amount of time you spend during the day on behavior management -- i.e., trying to keep children from bouncing off the walls?

If you answered yes to any of those questions, you're not alone...and this course is for you!

Children will develop friendlier feelings

toward you and each other!

"How to Keep "Em Off the Walls” gives you solid, proven methods to prevent behavior challenges before they disrupt your setting. It also shows you how to create a calmer, happier learning environment.

This course will share how you can:

  • Create a sense of community among children – vital if you want to avoid challenging behavior.
  • Show children the good feelings that come from working toward a common purpose or goal.
  • Foster self-regulation in a way children will enjoy!
  • Prevent restlessness with brain breaks.
  • Promote a sense of calm with relaxation exercises -- more important than ever!

Now with a new section

Since its original release in 2019, this course has been updated and expanded to include a section on trauma-informed teaching.

Covid and societal tensions have affected the lives not just of adults but of our children as well. Their routines and social interactions were upended, and many have experienced loss. Their families' stress levels are likely to have soared. 

Anxiety in children often results in changes in behavior, including withdrawal, clinginess, or aggression. 

So, this course now also looks at trauma's effect on behavior, and at how you can help children heal.
