Continuum of Behavior

Teaching my tech class to kindergarten kids last week, a girl in the class was resistant to following the plan I had and wanted to basically do whatever she wanted to do. This is very much in tune with what I see with my 2 1/2 year old son Aidan. Before we had Aidan, I would have thought about the girl’s behavior as oppositional or just something that needed to be fixed as she progressed through kindergarten. Even though my response was basically the same, I did feel that I was more compassionate and understanding with her in that I saw that her behavior was just the tail end of a toddler behavior.
