Nurturing Positive Behavior
Dealing with challenging behavior in children is a natural occurrence for both parents and teachers. This is often tied to their development. A show of defiance or aggression, or the use of hurtful words, may be because a child hasn’t yet learned the social, emotional, language, and cognitive skills needed to express themselves in more positive ways. At U-GRO, we see this as a learning opportunity. To help our teachers navigate these moments, we offer tools and resources for Positive Behavior Support.
Our exclusive myPath app contains strategies that encourage children to work through their emotions in a positive way, whether they’re in the classroom or elsewhere.
