Find a book by Becky Bailey, There’s got to be a better way: Discipline that works. It talks about using natural consequences. It is a really good book. I use a lot of natural discipline in my class. If a child throws a toy, I have them pick it up. Then I ask them what they can throw? I make sure there is something in the class that is acceptable to throw. I made yarn “pom-poms” to throw. If a child spills something, they get a paper towel and clean it up. This does not hurt their self-esteem like some discipline can. If a child is not acting right, I remove them from the situation. I put them in a safe spot (not time out), and say when you are ready to… for instance… sit at circle time, then you can get up. Or when you are all done being angry, you can get up. This usually works, but the younger they are, you might have to keep putting them in the safe spot, til they calm down. Good luck. Love and Logic books are great too.
