The behavioral and emotional expectations characteristics for preschoolers.

Three- and 4-year-old children may use hitting, biting, or pushing as a way to solve conflicts. They simply don't understand the difference between appropriate and inappropriate interactions yet. It's your job to teach your child that there are right and wrong ways to express emotions and resolve problems with others.

Ways to encourage prosocial behavior.

Listen to the children. They allow them to express their opinions. This sends a strong message to the child that what they have to say is important to you and that you want to hear what they have to say.

Encourage independence. This teaches the child to be self-confident about their abilities to learn new skills. They learn they can work independently.

Express warmth and nurturance. This establishes a sense of security, and a happier disposition

Encourage them to discuss options. They want their child to use their reasoning. This teaches them decision-making and other skills needed to navigate their environment

Guiding children when their behavior is especially challenging and difficult.

Consequences might include being moved in the classroom, a loss of privileges, or staying in during a break to finish work or tidy up a mess. Consequences should never be physically or psychologically harmful or humiliating.



Teachers can use strategies such as moving closer to a child, making eye contact, or use visual cues such as pictures or hand movements to remind children of appropriate behaviour.
