What are the Rights of child unicef?
Write a short, easy-to-read article on a service’s approach to behaviour guidance for a family newsletter. The article should be suitable for an education and care service that cares for children aged 0 to 6 years, and be approximately 300 words.
The focus of your short article should be on ‘why we focus on positive behaviour guidance not punishment’. Your article should include:
⦁ reflections on values and how these guide our understanding of appropriate and inappropriate behaviours
⦁ how the service responds to behaviour incidents.
Here are some basic tips child care providers can use to guide children's behavior.
