Teaching Child to Behave in Preschool

For a child, preschool is the first transition towards a new world, away from the safe confines of his home. Emotions will run high in a child as he enters the first day in a preschool. He may feel a little left out or may also start misbehaving. What to expect from a child in a preschool? Read on the tips to teach your child behave in preschool.

Preschool is your child’s first experience with the world beyond home and you. They happen to meet so many new people and come across so many things that were earlier not a part of their life that it is natural for them to get overwhelmed. Parents might observe some behavioral problems that basically follow from this change in setting. This is a common situation that does not call for panic but can readily be resolved with a fair amount of understanding and patience. Teaching the kid on how he is expected to behave in preschool fall under the social skill category and it simply requires practice and an environment that is conducive.

Here are some ideas on how you can teach your little one to behave well in his preschool:

Talk About Emotions

Preschool behavior depends a lot on how the kid is able to deal with his emotions. The more they understand their own and other’s emotions, they find themselves equipped to with peers and teachers with lesser difficulty and consequently are liked by all. In order to develop this emotional competence, parents should talk often about feelings, of their kids and of their own. Something like, “you love watching this funny cartoon, right?” or “when you are not listening to me, it makes me so sad.” They will gradually learn to regulate their feelings and cope with resentment and displeasure.

Work on a Loving Relationship

It has been observed that social development has its roots in the primary relationship i.e. the one that the kid shares with his parents. So make this bond an intimate and affectionate one. When they kid is assured on emotional security and knows for sure that you are there to help and support him adaptation in a new social environment like the preschool comes easily to them. When you have a sensitive communication, you will find that the kid becoming more responsive towards others’ behavior as well. They develop the ability to empathize and become cooperative.

Your Home Must Always display Warm Emotions

It has been observed in a research study that if the kid witness their parents especially their mothers displaying a negative emotion during problems or any disappointment, the kids are also likely to lose assurance that their parents can really support them in need and they become more frustrated and aggressive in their behavior. So a positive ‘can do it’ attitude helps the kids to deal with new situations and enhances their problem solving skills in their preschool as well.

Talk and Share

Talk to your child about what has been going on with him through out the day. Things like – how did he enjoys his day and did he face any problems. This will help the kid to some up with issues that are troubling him and you will get to know the root cause of his disturbed behavior, if he displays any. If you find him upset, be calm and supportive. Talk out and sooth the strong emotions. Soon you will find a positive response and the teachers of his preschool will also appreciate his social competence.

Finally remember that you are the first role model to your kid so as a parent you need to behave properly and lead by example. The kid will directly learn from your behavior and when he finds you positive in difficult situations, maintaining calm always, cooperative and appreciative of everyone’s help, the child will automatically learn the same.

quite right. Explaining the child about what to expect in preschool and how to behave there before he goes to school works best. Children also learn from examples sop how you behave is exhibited by them.

I believe in teaching kids about behaving in school is best done when they are very small and still haven't joined a playschool. As they say starting early helps a lot.
