In clear and understandable language, this resource explains what happens within a child when throwing a tantrum (verbal and/or physical) or exhibiting other disruptive behaviors, and offers teachers specific guidance and directions to meet the challenge. The One-Minute Temper Tantrum Solution helps teachers assess their beliefs about, and reactions to, children's aggressive behaviors to increase awareness of their own expectations and assumptions. The author examines developmental, situational, physical, and temperamental factors that can ignite acting-out behavior and explores the four types of tantrums that are related to power, distress, despair, and stress. The book includes vignettes, easy-to-implement strategies, and chapter summaries that highlight key topics. When educators recognize what causes aggressive behaviors, they can respond quickly to children's needs with appropriate strategies or interventions. This practical book can also be used in conjunction with the author's Difficult Behavior in Early Childhood which addresses issues underlying harmful behaviors.
