Title: 4 Year Old Aggression - Classroom Choas
Post by: KayFrecks on June 28, 2012, 06:24:41 PM
I am a childcare provider for a classroom of 3-4 year-olds. I have one little guy who is very aggressive. He often stomps on children's feet (for no particular reason), hits, pushes, and destroys things the children have made. I usually respond with a time-out. I use a timer and set it for 4 minutes (because he is 4-years old), but as soon as time-out is over, he's back doing the next aggressive behaviour. I often have to remove him from the classroom because I worry for the other children. I am desperate for new strategies to help this little guy. Any suggestions?
