Disruptive behaviors are common among young children which may be influenced by temperament and environmental factors. All children exhibiting challenging behavior require screening, education and support of parents and teachers, and therapeutic interventions.

As a caregiver, begin to work with parents and children on the first day of enrollment in your child care setting, to support a healthy and independent environment. Routines provide children with consistency and security which assist them through transitions. Routines include communication, dressing, napping, using the toilet and cleaning up.
