Summary Of Tricky Kids

Decent Essays
Many children display challenging behaviours in a variety of ways such as defiance, over-competitiveness, lack of ability to relate to others or other inappropriate behaviours such as violence toward others. "Tricky Kids” (Fuller, 2013) is a book that attempts to normalise some of the behaviours seen as inappropriate characteristics that can be positively maximised rather than pathologizing the behaviour. Models to help in maintaining appropriate behaviour for students in classrooms mainly involve evaluation of antecedents and consequences to problem behaviours and then making interventions based on these behaviours (Conroy, Asmus, Boyd, Ladwig, & Sellers, 2007). This is based in behavioural psychology with reinforcement of desired behaviour and consequences for maladaption to expected standards (Miltenberger, 2015).
