Transcript of Unit 16- B3
During the ages of 2-3 years children become more independent, confident and strong-willed.
Children of this age are learning lots of new language and vocabulary but are still unable to express themselves appropriately- leading to
temper tantrums and impulsive behaviour.
'I see, I want, I do'
What to do when tantrums occur
Allowing the tantrum to pass- ignoring the tantrum and the behaviour after it has happened.
Praise and attention- ignoring bad behaviour, praising good behaviour- so children learn what is good and bad behaviour.
We must not assume children know how to behave and what is considered good and bad behaviour
Children will do things with out thinking of the consequences- if it is good for them or not, if it is safe for them, if it may affect someone else.
You could call this a selfish attitude, but it is just part of their development and you need to understand this and be prepared for children to be impulsive.
Have toys/resources to distract them
Hiding toys/resources so as to not put it in the child's mind
Having safety measures in place
Give examples of when you have done this.
As children s speech and language develops they will become less compulsive- speech links to being able to plan, organise and recognise consequences
Why do children have tantrums?
What can you do to avoid tantrums?
Children tantrums occur spontaneously
Children of this age need around 12 hours of sleep
Key person quality time
Regular meals and snacks
Ample resources/ duplicate of resources/ distraction
Support other children who witness the tantrum
Give the child time to recover from the tantrum
Realistic behaviour for 2-3 year old children
No concept of sharing
Restless and active
No understanding that things belong to others
Snatching- I want attitude
Do not like sharing adult attention
Therefore, it is important to understand that certain behaviours are a normal part of development for this age.
Children are active and always on the goal and clearing to be independent.
Children love to do things for themselves to become independent and you, as an early years practitioner must provide for this within the environment and your practice.
Children will then learn new skills, be proud of their achievements and develop confidence and self-esteem.
Providing an environment where children can access resources themselves
Allowing children to develop care skills- dressing/feeding
Allowing children the time they need to accomplish something
Role play opportunities
