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.
