In the classroom::Children with Challenging Behaviors

A free guide to helping children with challenging behavior because I believe it is so important to change the way many teachers are reacting.
My guess is that many teachers don’t realize there is hope. Challenging behaviors are learned behavior, and therefore they can be changed. These behaviors are highly affected by the environment, so if we change the environment, we can have a big impact on behavior. This requires, however, that we make a HUGE mental change from thinking about punishing behaviors to thinking about teaching new behaviors. If a teacher can do this, however, she will be happier, more effective, and the child will be saved from a downward spiral of educational failure.
