Young children deal with many of the same emotions adults do. Children get angry, sad, frustrated, nervous, happy, or embarrassed, but they often do not have the words to talk about how they are feeling. Instead, they sometimes act out these emotions in very physical and inappropriate ways. We can prevent this by teaching emotions and using positive language. Replace “don’t” with “do”. Tell children what to do instead of what not to do! “Please keep your feet on the floor” tells a child exactly what the expectation is and makes it more likely that the child will cooperate.
