- Who would you consult when setting behavioural expectations for Bradley?
Bradley is a three-year-old boy who attends your service two days a week. He has been in the pre-school room for the last three months and during that time his behaviour has become increasingly challenging. Bradley is openly defiant to all but one of the educators. He refuses to follow directions, join in on group time, or participate in planned activities. When asked to join a group, he screams ‘No’, and, if pressed, will swear and throw objects at the educators. He wanders aimlessly around the room, sabotaging the other children’s work, knocking over their block constructions, or scribbling on their drawings. He lashes out physically towards the other children for no apparent reason, and they are now so scared of him that they avoid him whenever possible. When the educators have tried to discuss Bradley’s increasingly disturbing behaviour with his family they have appeared disinterested and make flippant remarks like ‘kids will be kids’ or ‘that’s boys for you’.
Yesterday Bradley attempted to run away from the service by sneaking out to the outdoor play area and trying to scale the fence. When an educator tried to get him down from the fence, he kicked her in the face, causing her nose to bleed.
- Which other sources of information were available to the educator
Rhian is a five-year-old girl who has just migrated with her family from Iran as a refugee. She attends your service twice a week and she is experiencing difficulty in forming friendships with the other children as she frequently wets her pants. At first, you assumed she was nervous and was forgetting to go to the toilet, but now you are wondering whether there is some other cause of her incontinence. You approach your Director to ask if there were any toileting issues identified at enrolment and find there were not. You decide to start a ‘Star Chart’ for her to reward every successful day without wetting herself. This is a dismal failure. You then try offering her stamps as a reward. After a few weeks, you decide to speak to her mother again about the problem because you have noticed that Rhian is deliberately restricting the amount of fluid she drinks through the day.
Rhian’s mother still insists that she is toilet trained and there must be something at the service that is stopping her from using the toilet. She asks to look again at the toilet and walks towards the staff toilet. You call her back and guide her to the children’s toilets, which are communal and open. The problem was evident immediately to Rhian’s mother; she explains that in Iran it is considered very shameful to go to the toilet where others can see you, so Rhian would not use the children’s toilet no matter what reward she was offered.
