Pstti techniques of handling children with emotional outbursts

  1. 1.  Preschool classroom discipline can be a challenge for even the most patient teacher.  At the preschool age, many students are just learning about right and wrong, which means that a student often doesn't realize that what he/she is doing is wrong.
  2. 2.  A sudden outpour of emotions or feelings is called an emotional outburst.  Emotional outbursts, often called temper tantrums, are unavoidable in preschool children.  The preschooler gets overwhelmed by his/her feelings and needs you there to help him/her gain control.
  3. 3.  Short, Simple, Clear Rules  Developmentally, preschoolers are not ready for long sentences or big words.  Clear Consequences  Preschoolers need an equally clear understanding of consequences.
  4. 4.  Put Preschoolers in a position to succeed  Plan daily lessons and activities that fit the children's developmental needs and attention spans.  Responses to Aggressive Behavior  Aggressive behavior is never acceptable. Preschoolers must learn to use words to solve conflicts rather than aggressive actions
  5. 5.  Try and reward and praise good behavior to reinforce it.  Avoid power struggles.  Plan ahead.  Pay positive attention to your child.  Allow the child to see the natural consequences of bad behavior.
  6. 6.  Distract the child • Let’s see who can count from 1-10 very fast. • Start singing a nursery rhyme and encourage the child to join in. • Start a new activity.  Time out • Thinking corner. • Restriction of activities.
  7. 7.  Hold children having harmful or ragetype tantrums. • If your child is totally out of control and screaming wildly, consider holding him. • Take your child in your arms, tell him you know he is angry, and offer him your sense of control • Some children won’t want you to comfort them. Hold your child only if it helps.
  8. 8.  Support and help children having frustration- or fatigue-related tantrums. • Children often have temper tantrums when they are frustrated with themselves. • At these times your child needs encouragement and a parent/teacher who listens. • Hunger can contribute to temper tantrums. • Temper tantrums also increase during sickness.
  9. 9.  Be positive around your students.  Reduce problem behavior by keeping children near socially responsible peers. This will help increase positive interaction between students and decrease problem behavior.  Use physical positive reinforcers to help increase desired classroom behavior. Common physical rewards are healthy snacks, stickers or toys.
  10. 10.  Give internal rewards to promote positive behavior.  Establish a class routine early and practice it over and over again.  Be Patient around preschoolers.
  11. 11.    There is a huge difference between punishing and disciplining the child. Frequent punishments can leave a bad impact on child’s mind. Punishing child, yelling at child and hitting the child can hamper his or her development. Positive reinforcements have a much better effect on a child’s behavior than punishments.
