There is no single, right way to deal with a child’s behaviour. Each child and situation is unique. Children’s behaviour is influenced by their overall development, their environment, and the adults who care for them. We will consider these factors and look at how the way we communicate with children both verbally and non-verbally can and does influence their behaviour.

In our afternoon session we will look more specifically at behaviours that may be seen as bullying and what we can do to support all of the children in our care and guide the development of pro-social behaviour.

Christine Hibbert is the Executive Director of Jericho Kid’s club Child Care Society in Vancouver. She also facilitates and was involved in the development of the “Key Elements of School-Age Care” training course.
