A common dynamic that is often frustrating to adults and potentially erodes the adult/child relationship is when a child defies us. It can be as subtle as ignoring our requests or as blatant as telling us “You’re not the boss of me!” Although the reaction is quite normal and even healthy in certain circumstances, its manifestations and impact can be highly disruptive, making life difficult to guide a child. It can create significant challenges in both the learning and behavioural spheres. Colleen will focus on making sense of oppositionality and how early child-care educators and parents can reduce this behaviour. She will provide strategies to help adults deepen attachment and gain cooperation with the children in their care.
Suitable for all early learning professionals.
