Why be positive?

Because it helps children learn how to behave (rather than how not to) and how to feel positively about themselves – and because it works!

Try to remember that you are dealing with difficult behaviour and not difficult children. Positive behaviour management involves reducing difficult behaviours, but also means teaching children new and more appropriate ways to behave instead. Therefore, you cannot separate behaviour management from the teaching of Personal, Social and Emotional Development in the EYFS.
