Should Us Adults Really Talk About the Child’s Problem Behaviors in Front of Them?
YES. We, the adults, discuss what has been going well, and what has not been going well. We also include the child in the conversations as appropriate. Discussing this in front of and/or with the child helps them to process the information and know the difference between good decisions/behaviors and bad decisions/behaviors. It also includes them in some decision-making (when it is possible and/or appropriate) depending upon what we are working on.
By Writing Down Problem Behaviors My Child is Having, am I Saying They Are a Bad Kid?
NO. Not at all. There are no bad kids, just bad behaviors. Problem Behaviors occur because the child lacks certain skills to get their wants and needs met appropriately. Accurately recording details regarding problem behaviors enables us to help you build the skills that you are your child need.
