Guiding Behavior

Guiding Behavior

As young children begin to interact with the larger world outside of their homes, they encounter new people and environments with novel rules and expectations. Additionally, their social and emotional development is underway, and they are just beginning to develop self-regulation.

It is critical that adults support the development of new skills while also teaching how to behave and interact with others in ways that are healthy and functional within a group setting. The development of trusting relationships provides a foundation for this process.
