Effective and practical solutions to respond to common skill lags and behavior challenges.

During the preschool years, children are beginning to gain cognitive skills and developing internal controls to regulate their emotions. While some young children may quickly learn these skills, other children may lack interest, find them difficult to perform, or exhibit challenging behaviors. Lags in skill development and challenging behaviors are normal but can still be improved upon. This book will help you identify and set goals for children who need more specific planning and support.

New to this second edition:

  • Early learning standard links to common skill lags and challenging behaviors
  • Research on brain development
  • Ideas for working with dual-language learners
  • Information on the impact of stress on children
  • A planning form to help you work with families to develop goal statements and a course of action
  • Reproducible handouts for parents that include suggestions for skills and behaviors children need to develop to ensure future learning and success

Age Focus: 3-6. Softbound, 256 pgs.

Super Resource!
When you work with children in any capacity, you will will see all kinds of emotions and all types of behaviors. Some good and some not so much. Some behaviors you can very simply put off as typical child development but other behaviors, like excessive hitting or inappropriate biting, will make you wonder if a child has deeper issues.

So This Is Normal?, by Deborah Hewitt, is a fantastic overview of behaviors seen in preschool children. You will learn about biting, agression, turn taking, attention getting, and so much more. This is a seriously valuable resource for all Early Childhood educators, whether you work in a center or family child care setting. With each topic you will find the typical behaviors, you will find the National standards, questions to determine how serious an issue is and ideas to deal with the issue in an appropriate manner. The book is extremely well organized and very easy to read and comprehend! 

I highly recommend this book and give it a huge thumbs up!

This book is a must-read for anyone who has been challenged by the behavior of a young child. Ms. Hewitt offers practical strategies to the reader, which they can use to guide children through their experiences and interactions in the social world. I know I will use it again and again as a reference!
