Early childhood teachers identify challenging behaviors as one of the most difficult aspects of their jobs and one
for which they feel the least prepared . This is reflected by the fact that program directors or elementary school administrators report that many early childhood teachers lack the skills necessary to address challenging behaviors . Teachers can prevent many challenging behaviors from occurring by developing effective classroom rules . This includes systematically teaching the rules and encouraging children to follow them, a practice that can have a significant effect on children’s behavior and create a more positive classroom environment . Often, preventing challenging behaviors from occurring in the first place is a more effective practice than addressing them after they occur . Doing so might also prevent negative outcomes, such as academic failure and peer rejection, for those students who engage in challenging behaviors .
