Resource books often provide tips and tricks for managing challenging behaviors, but what happens when those tactics don’t work? Most teachers give up. Push Past It! brings a raw, real, and at times funny approach to handling challenging behaviors and understanding why most behavior-management strategies don’t work. Author Angela Searcy shares real-world examples, proven solutions, and new approaches to overcoming classroom disruptions using her PUSH PAST IT approach. Beyond behavioral-management strategies, Push Past It! will teach you how to:
See children’s behavior as communication
Understand what is (and is not) developmentally appropriate behavior
Identify when to seek support
Communicate and listen more effectively
Help children overcome their own challenging behaviors
Take care of yourself too!
