Behavioral Health Technician was asked...January 18, 2018

What would you do if a child threw a pencil across the room while doing homework?

2 Answers

I would approach the child in a non-threatening manner and try to understand the situation. I would first ask if everything was okay. Then I would go on to ask why they threw the pencil. Then I would slowly talk to them about how they could have handled the situation differently. Less

My first reaction would be to approach the child and politely ask what the issue is. First determine if homework is the problem (which is often a minor issue that is easy to fix), or is it the result of something deeper. I would have to explain that throwing the pencil is not an appropriate reaction to frustration, but still have the child understand I am not attempting to scold them. Less
