All children have the right to be cared for in a happy environment; therefore it is important to ensure that all children know what is expected of them what the boundaries are. In order to achieve this I have some house rules which set reasonable and appropriate limits to help manage the behaviour of the children.
I help the children understand my house rules, which are realistic and I am consistent in the enforcing of them.
I will ensure that:
There are several ways to deal with a child who is misbehaving and I will use different ones depending on the age/stage of ability of the child and the situation:
I will never smack, shake or hurt your child. I will not humiliate your child.
If a child misbehaves I will let you know by either writing it in their daily diary or by ringing you later after collection. Some children can become upset if the incident is retold in front of them. I will also inform you of how the matter was dealt with. In most cases the matter will not require any further action, punishing a child hours after an incident achieves nothing but confusion and upset.
If you have any concerns regarding the managing of your child’s behaviour, please do not hesitate to contact me. It is important that we work together on managing behaviour in order not to confuse your child.
