This is a wonderful place to read about building a parent connection, and creating an environment that stimulates children while preventing unwanted behavior. Includes signals of distress to look for, the causes of challenging behavior in children, and how to address the issue. This is not only a great resource for teachers, but also for parents who can appreciate the head start approach.
